When tossing two pair of dice there are 36 possible outcomes.

1,6 - 2,6 - 3,6...

1,5 - 2,5 - 3,5...

1,4 - 2,4 - 3,4 ...

...

1,1

Continue pattern for all possibilities.

However getting a sum of 2 is only possible when each dice rolled is a 1. This only oocurs one time in all of the possibilities.

**The probability of rolling a total of 2 with 2 dice is `1/36.`**
