a pair of dice is tossed and the sum of the two dice is calculated. find the probability the sum is 7
Then how would I figure it out?
actually studygeek15 is right
You find the number of different sums there are And then you find of those sums how many of them give you 7
That is what I was about to say to do. I just thought it would be a smaller chance.
So, yes 1/6 is right because you can do 1 and 6, 2 and 5, and 3 and 4, which makes 6 possible answers, which makes it 1/6.
