When two dice are rolled, the probability of getting an even number on at least one die is 3/4. The probability of the two dice totaling an even number is 1/2.
The probability of an even number on one die is 1/2, as is the probability of an odd number. Thus, the probability of two odd numbers (no even numbers) is (1/2)*(1/2) = 1/4. That makes the probability of at least one even number be 1-1/4 = 3/4.

The two dice can be (odd, odd), (odd, even), (even, odd), or (even, even). If they are (odd, odd) or (even, even), the result will be an even number. Thus the probability of two dice totaling an even number is 2*(1/2)*(1/2) = 1/2.

I'll have to say , it is like Kenny Rogers sang , " Know when to hold , know when to fold them and   know when to run "  When it comes to gambling no one is sure .

It could be 1 out of 10  - 2 out of 10  and so on
