The sample space for a roll of two number cubes is shown in the table.

(1,1)|(1,2)|(1,3)|(1,4)|(1,5),(1,6)
(2,1)|(2,2)|(2,3)|(2,4)|(2,5)|(2,6)
(3,1)|(3,2)|(3,3)|(3,4)|(3,5)|(3,6)
(4,1)|(4,2)|(4,3)|(4,4)|(4,5)|(4,6)
(5,1)|(5,2)|(5,3)|(5,4)|(5,5)|(5,6)
(6,1)|(6,2)|(6,3)|(6,5)|(6,5)|(6,6) What is the probability that the roll will result in one even and one odd number?

A. 1/9
B. 1/4
C. 1/3
D. 1/2 ***

The two numbers rolled can be added to get a sum. Find P(sum is greater than 5).

  3. first one is correct

    prob(sum > 5)
    = 1 - prob(sum ≤ 5)
    = 1 - 10/36
    = 26/36
    = 13/18

  4. Bobpursley said I was wrong on the second one, I ORIGINALLY got 13/18. And, he said I got it wrong. But, I did. Click on my name, and go to "Are all answers right?" Strange, but thank you.

  5. It said: P(sum is greater than 5)
    so we have to exclude those equal or less than 5

    11 12 13 14
    21 22 23
    31 32
    41 -----> there are 10 of those, leaving 26 to be > 5

    so prob(sum> 5)
    = 1 - 10/36 = 26/36 = 13/18
    or by using the 26 count directly
    prob( sum > 5) = 26/36 = 13/18

    Trust this answer, please

  6. I trust you, too. I, too, got the same answer. But, bobpursley unexpectedly thought it was wrong or something.

  7. Sandy, I have made many errors and mistakes.
    Sometimes we read a question too quickly and miss something.
