Find the probability

  1. Feb 11, 2009 #1
    if you throw 2 dice 8 times, what is the probability that you will get at least one (1,1), that is, that you will roll "snake-eyes" at least one time?

    What's the probability you don't throw "snake-eyes" 8 times in a row? That's a hint. In the future, please try and show you've at least tried to solve the problem, ok? Don't just post the question.
