Total no. of outcomes 6*6=36.
Possible outcomes are (6,1),(1,6),(5,2),(2,5),(4,3),(3,4)= 6
Hence, Probability=6/36=1/6

What is the probability that rolling two identical dice together will result in the sum of the dice adding to 7?

A. 1/36
B. 1/6
C. 1/3
D. 5/6
E. 35/36


With 2 six-sided dice, there are 6 x 6 = 36 total outcomes from a roll of both dice.

Of those 36 outcomes, the ones that sum to 7 are:

1,6 and 6,1

2,5 and 5,2

3,4 and 4,3

Thus, the probability is 6/36 = 1/6.

Answer: B
