**If two dice are thrown together, what is the probability of obtaining at least a score of 10?**

**A.**** ****1/12**

**B.**** ****11/12**

**C.**** ****5/6**

**D.**** ****1/6**

**QUICK ANSWER…**

**D**

**DETAILS…**

**A dice is one of those white cubes which is often used to play the Ludo game, it has black dots all around its six faces with one face having 1 dot, another having 2 dots, and 3 dots, and 4, and 5, and 6 dots.**

**If two dices are thrown together at the same time, here are what you could likely get:**

**1-1, 1-2, 1-3, 1-4, 1-5, 1-6 …… 2-1, 2-2, 2-3, 2-4, 2-5, 2-6 ……. 3-1, 3-2, 3-3, 3-4, 3-5, 3-6 …… 4-1, 4-2, 4-3, 4-4, 4-5, 4-6 …… 5-1, 5-2, 5-3, 5-4, 5-5, 5-6 …… 6-1, 6-2, 6-3, 6-4, 6-5, 6-6**

**This implies that the total possible outcomes = 36**

**So, if we must determine the combination that will give at least 10 we would have to pick the combination that is greater or equal to 10.**

**So, we have: 4-6, 6-4,**

**5-5, 5-6, 6-5, 6-6 = 6 combinations**

**Recall that Probability = (number of required outcome)/(number of possible outcomes)**

**Probability = 6/36 = 1/6**

**Now for the right answer to the above question:**

**Option A is incorrect.****Option B is incorrect.****C is incorrect.****D is the correct answer.**

**KEY-POINTS…**

**You may please note these/this:**

**The probability of obtaining at least 10 would mean the probability of having a combination of 10 and above.****The combinations that will give 10 and above = 4-6, 5-5, 5-6, 6-4, 6-5, 6-6****These are six combinations.****If you love our answers, you can login to comment and say hi to us at the comment section…**
