 Question 670025: pleaseee help! Using the 36 possibilities in the product table for rolling two fair dice, find the probability, as a decimal to 3 places, of rolling the sum: P(11) Answer by Edwin McCravy(13211)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website! ``` Suppose, say, one die is red and the other green. Here are all the possible rolls with a red die and a green die: (1,1) (1,2) (1,3) (1,4) (1,5) (1,6) (2,1) (2,2) (2,3) (2,4) (2,5) (2,6) (3,1) (3,2) (3,3) (3,4) (3,5) (3,6) (4,1) (4,2) (4,3) (4,4) (4,5) (4,6) (5,1) (5,2) (5,3) (5,4) (5,5) (5,6) (6,1) (6,2) (6,3) (6,4) (6,5) (6,6) There are 36 possible rolls. The only rolls with have sum 11 are (5,6) and (6,5) So there are only 2 possible rolls out of the 36 which have that property. Therefore the probability is which reduces to = 0.056 Edwin```
