Name:    Lesson 10.2: Probability of Independent Events

1.

Emily wanted to determine the probability of rolling a sum of 6 with two dice.
She constructed this table of the sample space to help her.

 Die 1 Die 2 1 + 1 = 6 4 + 2 = 6 3 + 3 = 6 2 + 4 = 6 1 + 5 = 6

How many possible sums are there when rolling two dice?
 a. 6 b. 36 c. 18 d. 12

2.

 a. b. c. d. 3

4.

Use the sample space from question 1 to determine the probability of rolling an odd sum with two dice.
 a. 17 b. c. d.

5.
