Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1When you roll 2 dice, each of the two dice can have those 6 outcomes. That means the total number of outcomes of rolling two dice is 6 * 6 = 36.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Each square with two a twodigit number shows an outcome. The first number shows die A, and the second number shows die B. For example, 42 means die A is 4 and dies B is 2.
