# 49. What is The Probability of Getting a Sum 9 from Two Throws of a Dice?

**Answer: (2) 1/9**

**Explanation:-
**The number of faces in the dice = 6

Then, the total number of cases = 6 x 6 = 36

Favored cases which sum is 9 = (3, 6), (4, 5), (6, 3) , (5, 4)

Then, the number of cases = 4

Therefore, the probability = 4/36

= 1/9

Then, 1/9 is the probability of getting a sum 9 from the two though of a dice.

Hence, the answer is (2) 1/9.
