a) P(sum = 7) = 6/36 = 1/6

P(2 times of sum = 7) = 8C2 (1/6)^2 ( 5/6)^6 = .2605

b) P(at least 2 times of sum = 7) = 1 - ∑(i=0, 1) 8Ci (1/6)^i ( 5/6)^(8-i) = .3953

c) P(at most 2 times of sum = 7) = ∑(i=0, 2) 8Ci (1/6)^i ( 5/6)^(8-i) = .8652

d) P(sum = 7 or 11) = 8/36 = 2/9

P(A sum of 7 or 11 is rolled exactly 5 times) = 8C5 (2/9)^5 ( 7/9)^3 = .0143

e) P(A sum of 7 or 11 is never rolled) = ( 7/9)^8= .1339

f) P(A sum of 7 or 11 is rolled the 3rd and 5th time only) = (2/9)^2 (7/9)^6 = .0109
