    Die rolling

    An ordinary (fair) die is a cube with the numbers 1 through 6 on the sides (represented by painted spots). Imagine that such a die is rolled twice in succession and that the face values of the two rolls are added together. This sum is recorded as the outcome of a single trial of a random experiment.

    Compute the probability of each of the following events:

    Event A : The sum is greater than 8 .
    Event B : The sum is an odd number.
    Write your answers as exact fractions.

    P (A) =
    P (B) =
