Answer:1/6

Step-by-step explanation:We can start by determining all the different combinations we can get.

We are using 6 sided dices, so we have a chance of getting 6 different numbers for each dice.

If we only have 1 dice, the our possible values would be:

1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6

However, we have 2 dices. As such, our combinations have been multiplied, and now our possibilities are:

(1 , 1) , (1 , 2) , (1 , 3) , (1 , 4) , (1 , 5) , (1 , 6) , (2 , 1) , (2 , 2) , (2 , 3) , (2 , 4) , (2 , 5) , (2 ,6), and so on for 3, 4, 5, and 6

We can find the number of combinations by simply multiplying the amount of possible values for each dice.

Since both dices have 6 possible values, we multiply 6 by 6, and the amount of possible combinations is 36.

Now, let’s determine the possibility for getting a double.

First, let’s determine how many doubles we can get:

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

There are 6 different combinations for rolling a double.

So, our probability of rolling a double on two 6 sided dices is 6 out of 36

We can simplify that to 1 out of 6.

So the probability of rolling a double on two 6 sided dices is 1/6
