Hi All,

I am wondering which will come up more rolling a pair of dice: ODD or EVEN?

Thank you for your time.

No way to tell without actually doing it. The odds favor neither.... with each roll of two dice there is a 50% chance of it resulting in an odd total, and a 50% chance of it resulting in an even total.

A potential new side bet? The boxmen at Caesars would handle it... if there were boxmen at Caesars.

Aren't there six ways for an even result and five ways for an odd result?

Is at least one of the dice a two? :)Quote:RSIt's 1 in 6.

If one is definitely a two, then it's 100% even. Always.

But the question is worded poorly and the answer depends on your interpretation, something the mathletes struggle at.
