1. Consider the experiment of rolling a pair of dice. Suppose we are interested in the sum of face values showing on the dice.

1. How many simple events are possible?
2. List the sample space.
3. What is the probability of obtaining a 7?
4. What is the probability of obtaining a value of 9 or more?
5. 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.

Step 1

Hey, since there are multiple sub part questions posted, we will answer first three sub part question. If you want any specific sub part question to be answered then please submit that question only or specify the question number in your message.

Step 2

1.1.The number of simple events is obtained below:

From the given information, two pair of dice was rolled.

Each dice having 6 faces.

The number of simple events=6x6=36

Step 3

1.2.The sample space is listed below:

Let S be the sample space.

The required sample space is,
