How many dots does a pair of dice have?
The correct answer is: D! One dice has 21 dots on it, which means a pair of dice has 42 dots total. Traditionally, a dice will have six faces and each of them will show a different number of dots, ranging from 1 to 6. No one knows when the first pair of dice were invented, but we do know they have been around for an extremely long time. Some dice that have been found date back over 5,000 years ago!
According to this source, dice was once the plural of die, “but in modern standard English dice is both the singular and the plural: ‘throw the dice’ could mean a reference to either one or more than one dice.”
