Ten-sided dice are numbered zero to nine. Therefore, rolling a pair of them will always result in a number from 1 to 100, hence the term "percentile" dice. There are also dice that are numbered 00-100 and those are considered percentile dice as well.
4. Which of these game shows from the 50s and 60s employed a roll of one six-sided die to navigate through a path filled with cash and prizes?
