A and B throw a pair of dice. If A throws 9, find B’s chance of throwing a higher number.
Given: A and B throw a pair of dice. A throws 9.
To find: B’s chance of throwing a higher number.
Sample space of throwing a pair of dice is:
Sample space, n(S) = 36
let E be the number of events of getting sum higher than 9 i.e getting 10,11 and 12.
The pairs are:
then n(E) = 6
