**Reiny**, Tuesday, February 15, 2011 at 9:11amTo have an even sum

1. all four must be even (E)

2. all four must be odd (O)

3 two must be even, two must be odd.

prob that one die lands even = 3/6 = 1/2

the same as for odd.

prob of EEEE = (1/2)^4

prob of OOOO = (1/2)^4

prob of EEOO = 4!/(2!2!) (1/2)^4

sum = 1/16 + 6(1/16) + 1/16 = 8/16 = 1/2
