two dice are rolled find the probability of getting a 5 on either dice or the sum of both dice is 5

    However, the probability of getting 5 (or any other number 1-6) on a die is 1/6. The either-or probability is found by adding the probability of individual events.

    The sum of both dice = 5 can be obtained by

    1, 4
    4, 1
    2, 3 or
    3, 2

    The probability of getting any one of these pairings is 1/36. Again, the either-or probability is found by adding the probability of individual events.

    I hope this helps. Thanks for asking.
