Asked Sep 29, 2019

Two fair distinct dice are tossed. What is the probability of getting a 6 or a 7 in a toss of two dice?

Step 1

**Note:**

Hi there! Thank you for posting the question. Since getting a 7 in a toss is impossible, we assume that “the probability of getting a 6 or a 7 in a toss of two dice” as “the probability of getting a sum of 6 or a 7 in a toss of two dice” and proceeded.

Step 2

**Sample space:**

The set of all possible outcomes of a probability experiment is called sample space of the experiment.

Here, two fair distinct dice are tossed.
