    There are three ways. 5.5 6.4 or 4,6 there are (I believe) 26 ways to make something else. Total is 29 or probability of 3/29 I am guessing a 10% chance. Anyone else have an idea on this?

    There are 6 sides for each die. There are 6*6 ways for the dice to come up. For every side of the first die, there are 6 ways for the other die's sides to come up. radar was right regarding how many ways a 10 can show, ie 3. The probability of a 10 showing on a single throw is 3/36.
