Round the Dice Decimals 1

Age 7 to 11 Challenge Level:



There are two dice, each of them with faces labelled from 1 to 6.
When the dice are rolled they can be combined in two different ways to make a number less than 10 with one decimal place.

For example, if I roll a 2 and a 3 I can combine them to make 2.3 or 3.2.

Now round each of these numbers to the nearest whole number: 2.3 rounds to 2 and 3.2 rounds to 3. Repeat for other rolls of the dice.

Do both of the numbers you make ever round to the same whole number?

There some interactive dice here that you can use for this problem.
