Here's the question you clicked on:

A pair of honest dice is rolled, and the number on each die is noted. How many different outcomes are there in the sample space?
@monroe17 If I roll a die, how many possible outcomes are there?
what does sample space mean?
Yeah you're right, it's 6 Sample Space= all possible outcomes
Sample space refers to the list of all the possible outcomes of an experiment/event.
So what do you think will be the no. of events if we roll two dices?
oh gotcha! Thank you guys!
For eg. when you roll a dice, you can get a 1,2,3,4,5 or a 6, which is the sample space. so, 6 possible outcomes, hence 6 is the outcomes in the sample space.
If I get 1 on one dice, the second can have 6 possible outcomes, do you think that 12 is the no. of outcomes?
Wait im confused.. whats the question?
Okay I think we blooped it. o.O i missed out the 'couple of' die. :/
no. of outcomes when two dices are rolled (1, 1) , (1, 2)...... (1, 6) (2, 1) , (2, 2)...... (2, 6) . . . . (6,1 ) (6, 2)...........(6, 6)
Yeah, I got that. so 36?
when you are rolling two dice, you can have, 1 on one dice, and 1,2,3,4,5,6 on the other. similarly two on the first's gace and 6 possibilities on the other, and so on.. so 6*6 = 36 You're righty-right!! :P
So, I had it right the first time i just second guessed myself and changed it to 12 lol!
lol no worries, okay now ;)
