The faces of a red cube and a yellow cube are numbered from 1 to 6.

Question:

The faces of a red cube and a yellow cube are numbered from 1 to 6. Both cubes are rolled. What is the probability that the top face of each cube will have the same number?

Solution:

GIVEN: The face of red cube and a yellow cube are marked 1 to 6

TO FIND: Probability of getting the same number on both the cubes

Let us first write the all possible events that can occur

(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),

Hence total number of events is 

Favorable events i.e. getting the same number on both the dice are

(1,1), (2,2), (3,3) (4,4), (5,5), (6,6)

Hence total number of favorable events i.e. the same number on both the cube is 6

We know that PROBABILITY = 

Hence probability of getting the same number on both the cube=
