Q:
# Select the favorable outcomes for rolling a sum less than five

Accepted Solution

A:

We want the sum of the two rolls to be less that five.

Therefore, we will examine each given set of choices and choose the one where all the points have a sum less than 5.

First set: all the point are 5 added to another number. Therefore, the sum is definitely not less than 5. This choice is rejected.

Second set: We have two points having 6 added to a number. Therefore, this choice is also rejected.

Third set: We have the points (5,5) and (6,6) which have a sum greater than 5. Therefore, this set is also rejected.

Fourth set: We have:

(1,1) with sum = 2

(1,2) with sum = 3

(1,3) with sum = 4

(2,1) with sum = 3

(2,2) with sum = 4

(3,1) with sum = 4

Therefore, all sums are less than 5. This is the correct choice.

Based on the above, the correct option is the last one.
