# Math Help - Probability

1. ## Probability

Two dice, one red and one white are rolled. What is the probability that the white die turns up a smaller number than the red die ?

give the answer step by step

2. ## Re: Probability

no of possible outcomes=6*6=36
now if white die sets 1 then red die has 2,3,4,5,6=5
white die sets 2 red die has 3,4,5,6=4
white die sets 3 red die has 4,5,6=3
white die sets 4 red die has 5,6=2
white die sets 5 red die has 6=1
now prob=(5+4+3+2+1)/36=5/12
