# Using Probability

- You throw two dice (6-sixed number cubes), what is the probability of getting two 5s?
- You throw two dice (6-sixed number cubes), what is the probability of getting one 6 and one 1?
- You throw two dice (6-sixed number cubes), what is the probability of your two throws adding up to 12?
- You reach into your sock drawer, which contains 5 black socks, 4 white socks, and 3 blue socks. If you pull out two socks, what is the probabilty that you get a pair of blue socks?
- If you reach into the same (full) sock drawer, what are the odds of getting a pair of white socks?
- If you reach into the same (full) sock drawer, what are the olds that you pull any pair of socks?
- You want to do a magic trick, but you're not very good at it. You want your audience member to pull a Queen of hearts out of a standard deck (52 cards). If the audience member pulls 5 cards, how would you find the probability that she will pull a Queen of hearts (assuming there is no magic at work?). (Don't do the problem, just write the problem you'd want to do!)
- Using a deck of cards, what is the probability that you pull any queen?
- If you pull two cards out of a deck of cards, what are the odds that you pull any queen and then any ace?
- If a student's probability of randomly being chosen "Star of the Week" is 1/11, how many students could be in the class? What is another amount of students that might be in the class?
