Two dices can be thrown in 6x6=36 ways n(S)= 36 Let A denotes the event of getting even number S THE SUM Ii.e, 2,4,6,8,10 12 Hence A={( 1,1 ),(1,3 ) (1,5 ) (2,2 ) , (2,4 ) , (2,6 ), ( 4,4 ), (4,6 ), ( 4,2 ), (5,3 ),( 3,5 ),( 6,6 ), (6,4 ),.( 5,1 ), (3,1 ) ,( 6,2 ),( 3,3 ), (5,5 ) }, n(A)= 18 thus,required probability= P(A)= n(A)/n(S)= 18/36= 1/2 =50%

The two values are chosen from {1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6}. There are 6*3 = 18 ways to get two numbers of the same parity (the first can be any of the 6 numbers, and the second has to be 3 of the possible 6 which have the same parity), giving a total of 18 ways to get an even sum out of a possible of 6*6 = 36 outcomes (we don't have to consider if the first number is even or odd since there are an equal number of even/odd numbers to choose from in the second dice). So the probability is 1/2. Note that this would be different if we used, say, 7-sided dice since P(even)*P(even) + P(odd)*P(odd) = 3*3 + 4*4 = 25 out of a possible of 7*7 = 49 outcomes, giving a probability of 25/49 ≠ 1/2.

25% 1 Vote mathguy Probability = 0.50. The sum may be even or odd, both having the same probabiility. Another way of looking at it is that both dice should have an odd number or both should have the even number. => required probability = probability of both to have an odd number + both to have the even number
