Consider a die with 8 sides, marked one, two, three, and so on. assuming equally likely outcome, find the probability that the sum of two dice is the given number. If p(10)=

There are 64 possible dice throw outcomes.
The throws with sum 10 are:
(2,8) (3,7) (4,6) (5,5) (6,4) (7,3) (8,2)
Therefore P(10) is 7 out of 64 (7/64)
