You are playing a gambling game with a pirate in which you roll two fair six  sided dice. If the sum of the dice is a prime number, then you must walk the plank ... and you can’t swim! If you manage to avoid the plank, there’s a 1/13
chance that the pirate will behead you with his sword. What is the probability that you will survive?
