## Homework Statement

A trial consists of throwing two dice. The result is counted as successful if the sum of

the outcomes is 12. What is the probability that the number of successes in 36 such trials

is greater than one? What is this probability if we approximate its value using the Poisson

random variable?

## The Attempt at a Solution

So there is a 1/36 chance that throwing two dice results in a sum of 12. I'm not sure where to go from here though.
