Answer:

#P(10) = 1/12#

Explanation:

If you roll two dice, there are #6xx6 = 36# possible outcomes.

There are only three different ways of getting a total of #10#

#4+6=10#
#5+5= 10#
#6+4 =10#

#"Probability of an event" = ("number of desirable outcomes")/("total number of possible outcomes")#

#P(10) = 3/36 = 1/12#

Answer:

#1/12#

Explanation:

#6 & 4, 5 & 5, 4 & 6#.

Each has probability #1/36# so aggregate is #3/36=1/12#

The following chart shows the probability of throwing #n# with two dice.

The more dice you throw, the more this distribution tends towards a normal distribution.
