Jill made two 6 sided dice and labeled each of them with these numbers.
-3, -2, -1, 0, 1, 2
Suppose this pair of dice was tossed 1,000 times and the numbers on the two top faces were added. Which sum would probably be the most common? And why?

  1. Draw a 6 by 6 matrix containing the given numbers in the rows and columns
    Fill in the sums , just like you would for the numbers from 1 to 6 in a regular die.
    Which sum is the most common?
    How many times out the 36 sums does it appear?
    find the probability.
    multiply that probability by 1000
