    3+1 = 4 [even] 3+2 = 5 [odd] 3+ 3 = 6 [even] 3+ 4 = 7 [odd] 3 + 5 = 8 [even] 3 + 6 = 9 [odd]

    looks to me there are 3 options that get you odd, 3 that give you even

    (so 3/6 possibilities for the second die to make an odd number) = 50%

    that's generally how these work - you want to consider <success case>/<total possibilities> - especially given all possibilities are equally likely e.g. a fair die
