Textbook Problem

Suppose you are throwing two dice in a friendly game of craps. For any given throw, the two numbers that are faceup can have a sum of 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, or 12. Which outcome is most probable? Which is least probable?

To determine
The most probable outcomes after throwing two dice. For a given throw, the two numbers that are face up can have a sum of 2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10,11,12 and the most probable outcomes after throwing two dice. For a given throw, the two numbers that are face up can have a sum of 2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10,11,12.

Explanation

In probability theory, an outcome is a possible result of an experiment. Each and every possible outcome must be unique.

After throwing two dice together, for any given throw the two numbers that can face up can have a sum of 7 will be the most probable. Because, there are six ways that this can be occurred. That are 1-6, 6-1, 2-5, 5-2, 3-4, 4-3.

Thus, the most probable outcomes after throwing two dice...
