If I roll two dice, I can score a total of both 9 and 10 in two different ways:

9 = 3 + 6 or 4 + 5

10 = 4 + 6 or 5 + 5

Convince yourself that you are more likely to score 9 than 10 when you roll two dice.

**If I roll 3 dice, which is more likely, a total score of 9, or a total score of 10?**

9 = 3 + 6 or 4 + 5

10 = 4 + 6 or 5 + 5

Convince yourself that you are more likely to score 9 than 10 when you roll two dice.
