Melinda will roll two standard six-sided dice and make a two-digit number with the two numbers she rolls. For example, if she rolls a 6 and 3, she can either form 36 or 63. What is the probability that she will be able to make an integer between 10 and 20?

*Melinda will roll two standard six-sided dice and make a two-digit number with the two numbers she rolls. For example, if she rolls a 6 and 3, she can either form 36 or 63. What is the probability that she will be able to make an integer between 10 and 20?*

One of the dice must be a 1, then the other die can be anything. Either die can be the 1.

This table shows all the possibilities:

1,1 1,2 1,3 1,4 1,5 1,6

2,1 2,2 2,3 2,4 2,5 2,6

3,1 3,2 3,3 3,4 3,5 3,6

4,1 4,2 4,3 4,4 4,5 4,6

5,1 5,2 5,3 5,4 5,5 5,6

6,1 6,2 6,3 6,4 6,5 6,6

You can see that there are 11 rolls that contain at least one 1. There are 36 rolls possible.

So the likelihood of getting a total between 10 and 20 is **11/36**.
