Financial Analyst interview questions shared by candidates### What is the probability of throwing 11 and over with 2 dices

14 Answers↳

The answer is 1/12 because there are two ways of rolling 11, rolling a 5 and a 6 or rolling a 6 and a 5 (for probability purposes there are indeed two different results). There is only 1 way to roll over 11 (two 6's). That means that out of 36 possible combinations, 3 qualify as being equal to or greater than 11, which means that the probability is 3/36, which reduces to 1/12. Less

1/12

↳

The answer is there are 6 sides on each die, therefore, 6 times 6 is 36, giving us all the possible outcomes. You can roll an 11 one of two ways a, 5 and a 6 or a 6 and a 5. You can roll a 12 only one way. This gives us 3 possible outcomes of 11 or over out of 36. Which reduces to 1/12. Less

1.25 for the bat and .25 for the ball... You could not value the bat at 1.50 or 1.00, because they are not equal to 1 dollar more than the ball. Less

### A casino decides it wants to open a new game on the floor. You win by rolling a die. If you roll 1, you get a $1000, if you roll 2, you get $2000, and so on and so forth. How much should the casino charge in order to come out ahead?

5 Answers↳

oooops above answer is wrong!

↳

> $6500 for each time rolling a dice

↳

Probability of paying out each die number is 16.67% per roll. So, over time, the casino will pay out $3500 per player. $3,501+ is the price to come out on top. Less
