Choices:
a. 0.484

b. 0.333

c. 0.515

d. 0.238

QUESTION:
What are the odds of getting 2 ones in a single throw of a pair of dice?
Choices:
a. 25 to 36
b. 35 to 36
c. 1 to 36
d. 1 to 35
d. 1 to 35
SOLUTION
There are 6x6 or 36 possible outcomes when throwing two dice
P(s) = 1/36
P(f) = 1 1/36 = 35/36
Odds = P(s)/(P(f) = (1/36) / (35/36) = 1/35

QUESTION:
Find the probability of getting a sum of 7 on the first of two dice and a sum of 4 on
the second throw.
Choices:
a. 1/72
b. 1/6
c. 11/36
d. 6/36
a. 1/72
SOLUTION
Let A be a sum of 7 on the first throw. Let B be a sum of 4 on the second throw.
P(A) = 6/36
P(B) = 3/36
P(A and B) = P(A).P(B) = (6/36)(3/36) = 1/72
