    :-

    Number of possible outcomes is 36

    Number of outcomes that yield sum of 11 is two____(5,6) and (6,5)

    P ( sum of 11 ) = 2/36 = 1/18

    Each die has six numbers from 1 to 6.

    Total number of combinations = 6² = 36

    Combinations to get 11: (5,6) and (6,5)

    Number of combination to get 11 = 2

    Percentage of getting 11

    = (2/36) × 100%

    = (50/9)%

    ≈ 5.56% (to 3 sig. fig.)

    11 = 5 + 6

    P(5) = ¹⁄₆ 

    P(6) = ¹⁄₆

    P(11) = P (5) AND P(6) = ¹⁄₆ • ¹⁄₆ = ¹⁄₃₆..............ANS

      There are TWO ways to get 11: 5&6, and 6&5. You need to count them both.

    There are two outcomes (6-5 and 5-6) out of 36 total for a probability of 2/36 = 1/18.  As a percentage. that's about 5.56% (5.555... precisely).
