Question

# What is the probability of getting a sum 10, when two dice are thrown simultaneously?A.$\dfrac{1}{{12}}$B.$\dfrac{1}{6}$C.$\dfrac{1}{9}$D.$\dfrac{1}{8}$

Hint: We will use the definition of probability to solve the question and then we will calculate the possible outcomes. The total outcomes will be calculated by the formula ${6}^{n}$ where n is the total number of dice thrown. Then using the definition, we will find the probability as:
Probability of an event = the total number of possible outcomes/ the total number of outcomes

We will first find the total number of outcomes using the formula: ${6}^{n}$ where n is the total number of dice. Here, n = 2.
Therefore, the total possible outcomes are: ${6}^{2}$ = 36
The probability of getting the sum 10 = $\dfrac{the\, total\, number\, of\, possible\, outcomes}{ the\, total\, number\, of\, outcomes}$ = $\dfrac{3}{{36}} = \dfrac{1}{{12}}$
