Suppose you roll a six-sided die two times hoping to get two numbers whose sum is less than 4. What is the sample space? How many favorable outcomes are there?

    well if you roll 2 dice you will have 36 events in the sample space you need to find the sums of the 2 faces a tree diagram is one way of doing it or a table

    so you need to find the sum of the 3 faces... and there are 36 pairs when you get them you need to see how many 4's occur

    no there aren't 5 ways pf getting 4... just complete the table... and you will see the sample space... and you will also see the number of 4's that are possible when you add the 2 faces

    just continue completing the table as you need to show the sample space... and the table will give the sample space

    For the first question you can draw the table and say that is your sample space.

    the sample space is all possible ways to roll two dice and add them . there are 36 ways this can occur. and the amount of numbers under 4 is 3 and i counted all the number of out comes and it will be 36 favorable outcomes.

    this is sufficient "the sample space is all possible ways to roll two dice and add them . there are 36 ways this can occur. and the amount of numbers under 4 is 3 "
