Consider the experiment of rolling a pair of dice. Suppose we are interested in the sum of face values showing on the dice. How many simple events are possible?List the sample space.What is the probability of obtaining a 7?What is the probability of obtaining a value of 9 or more?Because each roll has six possible even values (2,4,6,8,10,12) and five possible odd values (3,5,7,9,11), the dice should show even values more often than odd values. Do you agree with this statement? Explain.
