It would be helpful if we knew all the possible sums of the dice. I think it is easiest to use a table with numbers 1-6 on the top row and 1-6 on the left column, and just compute all the sums. Then we can easily see all the prime sums from the table. |dw:1349635556005:dw|

I tried that and I missed a few sums. Your table makes it more clear. Thank you. very much. So it would be 15/36 reduced into 5/12 correct?
