Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So here are the dice combinations that make a 5 (parenthesis mean separate rolls): (1,4) (2,3) (3,2) (4,1) < That give 4 possible rolls right there. Next determine the same for a sum of 6 and a sum of 7. Finally determine how many possible combinations two die can make. Divide the sum of the former by the later.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I got 36 possible rolls total. You have 4 possible rolls for a sum of 5, at to that number the number of different ways 2 die can add up to 6 and again with adding up to 7. Put that result over 36 and you'll have your answer.
