Find the probability of rolling a prime number

Apr 23rd, 2015

We find this number by multiplying 6 x 6. The logic is there are six sides to each die, so for each number on one die you can pair with six different numbers on the other die. Therefore, the probability of rolling a prime number on two dice is 15/36, which reduces to 5/12 (E)

Probability for rolling two dice with the six sided dots such as 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 and 6 dots in each die.

When two dice are thrown simultaneously, thus number of event can be 62 = 36 because each die has 1 to 6 number on its faces

example; Two dice are rolled. Let A, B, C be the events of getting a sum of 2, a sum of 3 and a sum of 4 respectively. Then, show that 

(i) A is a simple event
(ii) B and C are compound events
(iii) A and B are mutually exclusive

Solution: 

Clearly, we have
A = {(1, 1)}, B = {(1, 2), (2, 1)} and C = {(1, 3), (3, 1), (2, 2)}.

(i) Since A consists of a single sample point, it is a simple event.

(ii) Since both B and C contain more than one sample point, each one of them is a compound event.

(iii) Since A ∩ B = ∅, A and B are mutually exclusive.
