Sum on dice

We have two dice. What is the greater likelihood of falling a total sum of 7 or 8? (write 7, 8, or 0 if the probabilities are the same)?

Correct answer:

x =  7

Step-by-step explanation:

 7 = 1+6=2+5=3+4=4+3=5+2=6+1 8 = 2+6 = 3+5 = 4+4 = 5+3 = 6+2 p1>p2 x=7

Did you find an error or inaccuracy? Feel free to write us. Thank you!

hmmm, so we have 8 = 4+4 = 4+4 (thus one less variation than 7)

i dont think so
