In summary, the probability of rolling snake eyes in 8 dice throws is extremely low, at approximately 1 in 2.8 billion. It is possible but unlikely to roll snake eyes in 8 dice throws. The more dice throws you have, the lower the probability becomes. It is not possible to increase the probability for a fair set of dice, but it may be altered if the dice are weighted or manipulated. In a game of Monopoly, where players roll two dice at a time, the probability of rolling snake eyes in 8 dice throws is (1/36)^4, which is approximately 1 in 4.7 million.

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.
 

Related to Probability of Rolling Snake Eyes in 8 Dice Throws

1. What is the probability of rolling snake eyes in 8 dice throws?

The probability of rolling snake eyes (two ones) on a single dice throw is 1/36. Therefore, the probability of rolling snake eyes in 8 dice throws is (1/36)^8, which is approximately 1 in 2.8 billion.

2. Is it possible to roll snake eyes in 8 dice throws?

Yes, it is possible but very unlikely. The probability of rolling snake eyes in 8 dice throws is extremely low, but not impossible.

3. How does the number of dice throws affect the probability of rolling snake eyes?

The more dice throws you have, the lower the probability of rolling snake eyes becomes. This is because the probability of rolling snake eyes on a single dice throw is fixed at 1/36, and each additional throw reduces the overall probability.

4. Can the probability of rolling snake eyes in 8 dice throws be increased?

No, the probability cannot be increased for a fair set of dice. However, if the dice are weighted or manipulated in some way, the probability may be altered.

5. What is the probability of rolling snake eyes in 8 dice throws in a game of Monopoly?

In Monopoly, players roll two dice at a time. Therefore, the probability of rolling snake eyes in 8 dice throws during a game of Monopoly is (1/36)^4, which is approximately 1 in 4.7 million.
