# Two six-sided die are tossed. What is the probability that they both come up as one?

The ratio between the number of favorable outcomes to the total number of outcomes is called probability. It lies between 0 and 1.

## Answer: The probability that both the die come up a one is 1/36

Let's find the probability.

**Explanation:**

When two six-sided die are rolled, the sample space outcomes will be

(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)

We have only one outcome where both the die come up to one.

⇒ P(E) = Number of favorable outcome / Total number of outcomes.

⇒ P(two die with come up with one) = 1/36
