You roll 2 dice. What is the probability that the sum of the dice is odd and both dice show the number 5? Write fractions using the slash ( / ) key. Reduce fractions to their lowest terms.

    Zero. If both show the number five, the sum is ten, which is not odd. The two given conditions (odd total, both dice show five) are contradictory.

    The sume of the dice cannot be odd if both the dice show 5, so I'll assume you have two different questions. Look at the figure attached. 1) Out of the 36 possible outcomes, the sum is odd on 18 occasions, so the probability will be 18/36 which equals 1/2 2) The probability of both dice showing five is 1/36
