Order of operations 2015-09-12
Tanisha pose la question :
I would just like to double check if something like 5x squared times 4x cubed equals 20x to the power of 5??
It's just that we were told you can only answer an equation like this if the base is the same...so does that mean the x part or the whole thing like 5x? I'm sorry if that didn't make sense!

Thank you for your help!!

Can you please tell me how to set up this problem to find the answer. I know they are independent from there I don't know. a coin and a regular six-sided die are tossed together once. What is the probability that the coin shows a head or the die has a 5 on the upward face?

A die is loaded so that... 2009-01-30
Larry pose la question :
Hi. I'm having trouble solving this problem. Would you be kind enough to point me in the right direction?
A die is loaded so that the probability of a particular face rolling up is proportional to the number of dots on the face. In other words, getting a six is three times as probable as getting a two. what is the probability of getting an even number in one toss?

Rolling a die repeatedly (you can't just add percentages) 2007-10-04
Howard pose la question :
If my son has a 16.66% chance of rolling a particular number on a dice, and he rolls for it 6 times, he knows (from experience) that his odds of getting at least 1 right are not 100% (16.66% +16.66%+16.66% etc). He asked me if there was an equation that would give him the correct percentage chance of success when trying X times for a Y% chance of something.

A probability question which resulted from a game of Yahtzee 2005-12-31
Robert pose la question :
Could someone please assist me with this probability question which resulted from a game of Yahtzee we were playing in Melbourne, Australia on our holidays.

The object on this turn was to throw a “large straight” which is 5 numbers in sequence from 5 dice numbered 1 – 6. A player initially throws all 5 dice and then selects those dice they want to throw again for a further two more times. In this instance the player on their first throw, threw a 1,2,3,4 and 6.

Question:- What is the respective probabilities of gaining a straight if they were to –

a) put back say the 6 and try and throw a 5 on the two further throws or…..
b) put back the 1 and 6 and try and throw a 1 and 5 or 5 and 6 on the two further throws bearing in mind that if one of the numbers was a 5 on the second throw they could hold that number and try for a 1 or 6 on the third throw.

I would be most appreciative if someone could assist in showing me how to calculate the probabilities particularly in the second instance (b).

Four 25-sided dice 2005-11-24
dan pose la question :
Simply put, I am curious to find the likelyhood of each possibility (4-100) if I were to roll 4 25-sided die. It seems to start off simply, as 1, 4, 10, 20...following the inside diagonal of Pascal's triangle. But as soon as i reach the point where the sum is greater than the number of sides, Pascal's no longer seems to work. I would be greatly appreciated if I could be informed of the proper formula to find this answer, or perhaps if my theory of doing it is wrong.

Three dice 2004-05-10
A student pose la question :
If one has 3, 6 sided dice what is the probability of the numbers that are rolled to total 4 through 10 inclusively?

Subsequent to this, what is the probability to do this consecutively...say 3 times?

A game of dice 2002-05-13
Mika pose la question :
To play a game a dice is rolled to see who plays first. four players are going to play the game. what is the probability that at least two people roll the same number?

ANSWER: P(least 2 people roll the same #)=number of player/total outcome

P = 4!/4C2 = 24/4C2 = 4 the answer is 40%

A probability tree 2002-05-04
A student pose la question :
Karl and Naomi roll three dice. Karl gives $10 to Naomi if the number 5 turns up once, twice or three times. Naomi gives Karl $3 in all other cases. A) construct the probability tree for this situation.

B) Does Karl have an advantage in this game? Justify your answer.
My problem is I am unfamiliar on how to draw this probability tree and seem to be having a lot of difficulties, when you have a chance please answer this math problem and get back to me with the results.

Rolling two dice 2001-09-10
Owen pose la question :
This probability question has been bugging me for a while. Two ordinary dice are rolled. If it is known that one shows a 5, what is the probability that they total 8?

I have two different but (seemingly) correct solutions.

Probabilities and dice. 2001-05-04
Carmen pose la question :
Hi! My name is Carmen! I am a member of a grade 5 class in Edmonton, AB. We were talking about probability in math, and I was wanted to know what the probability (odds) of rolling two sixes would be rolling two dice? If it is not to diffucult could you tell me what the probability (odds) of rolling any number with two dice were?

Three dice 2001-01-03
John Read pose la question :
I have three dice (A, B, C.) Three sides of each dice are blank. Three sides of each dice have a number. When the dice are thrown, it must be possible to result in the numbers 1 to 49 in any combinations without doubling up on any figure. i.e. Different combinations resulting in the same end number. I managed to get from 1 to 47 before getting stuck.

Snake Eyes 1998-07-20
Would you please advise me what the probability is of rolling snake eyes on a pair of dice is? My recollection is 1 out of 6 multiplied by 1 out of 6 = 1 out of 36 is this correct?
