Hi Everyone

Can anyone please explain it with the answer and also if there is any trick to do this kind of math? One more thing does this type of math come to the real test?

Thanks.

To throw a die twice, there are (6*6) = 36 possible incidents. Now the way you get at least 5 dollar from first two throws are to throw

- 4 and then 6
- 6 and then 4
- 5 and then 6
- 6 and then 5
- 6 and then 6

Now, the desired no. of incidents is 5 and the total no. of incidents is 36. So, the possibility is 5/36.
