A die has its six faces marked 0, 1, 1, 1, 6, 6. Two such dice are thrown together and the total score is recorded.

(ii) What is the probability of getting a total of 7?
 

Answers (1)

(i) Answer. [6]
Solution. Count the number of sums we can notice by using two dice of (0, 1, 1, 1, 6, 6) type.
We can get a sum of 0 = (0,0)
We can get a sum of 1 = (0,1) , (1,0)
We can get a sum of 2 = (1,1)
We can get a sum of 6 = (0,6) , (6,0)
 We can get a sum of 7 = (6,1) , (1,6)
We can get a sum of 12 = (6,6)
We can get a score of 0, 1, 2, 6, 7, 12
Hence we can get 6 different scores.

(ii) Answer. [4/9]
Solution. Probability; Probability means possibility. It is a branch of mathematics that deals with the occurrence of a random event. The value is expressed from zero to one
Total cases = 36
Case of getting sum 7 = (1, 6), (1, 6), (1, 6), (1, 6), (1, 6), (1, 6), (6,1), ( 6,1), (6,1), ( 6,1), (6,1), (6,1),
Number of favourable cases = 12
Probability = \frac{Number\, of\, favourable\ cases }{Total\, number\, of\, cases}
Probability of getting a total 7 = \frac{12}{36}= \frac{1}{3}
