You need to learn some elementary probability theory. For starters: if you have two independent events (A and B) with probabilities P(A) and P(B), then the probability of both happening is P(A)xP(B).

For your first question: A = {even number on first die} P(A) = 1/2, B = {odd number on second die} P(B) = 1/2. Since A and B are independent, the probability of both happening = 1/4.

Similarly - second question: prob. (both) = (1/6)x(1/3) = 1/18.

For the table, you simply have a 4 x 6 table. {1,2,3,6} x {1,2,3,4,5,6} February 9th, 2014, 02:30 PM   #3

There are two cases to consider.
