Math

Hello. I'm not asking for you to give me the answer to this question, but could you please help me?

Hallie is trying to win the grand prize on a game show. Should she try her luck by spinning a wheel with 6 equal sections labeled 1 to 6 and hope she gets a 5, or should she roll two number cubes and hope she gets the same number on both cubes? Explain.

I know that the wheel has six possible outcome and that 5 is only ONE OF them, therefore it's 1/6 of the possible outcomes.
I get confused when it comes to the number cubes.
When the question says, "the same number," is it talking about, "5" or double any number? I'm so confused. I'm really not trying to cheat, but I've been stuck on this for two days.

  1. it sounds like doubles on the dice...not any specific number

    her chances of winning are the same with both

    one number out of six on the wheel
    ... or 6 chances out of 36 with the dice

  3. I found this, maybe it will help btw this is a verified answer from a site called brainly.

    She should role it twice because maybe those two answer might add up too 5 for e.g the dice show 3 and on the other other dice it say 2 that means 3+2=5

  4. there are 6 ways to get doubles on the dice
    ... any of the six numbers on both dice ... 1-1, 2-2, 3-3, 4-4, 5-5, 6-6

    there are 36 possible outcomes from rolling the dice
    ... any of the six numbers on one die, with any of the six numbers on the other die
