What is the probability of throwing 11 and over with 2 dices

14 Answers

1/12

If you are rolling two dice the chances of getting an 11 and OVER is 2/12= 1/6. You can roll a 6 and a 5 to equal 11 and you can roll a 6 and a 6 and get 12 which is OVER 11, therefore the answer should be 1/6.

The answer is 1/12 because there are two ways of rolling 11, rolling a 5 and a 6 or rolling a 6 and a 5 (for probability purposes there are indeed two different results). There is only 1 way to roll over 11 (two 6's). That means that out of 36 possible combinations, 3 qualify as being equal to or greater than 11, which means that the probability is 3/36, which reduces to 1/12.
