Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1The sample space has 36 possible combinations of numbers. These can be set out in column form as follows: 6,6 5,6 4,6 3,6 2,6 1,6 6,5 5,5 4,5 3,5 2,5 1,5 6,4 5,4 4,4 3,4 2,4 1,4 6,3 5,3 4,3 3,3 2,3 1,3 6,2 5,2 4,2 3,2 2,2 1,2 6,1 5,1 4,1 3,1 2,1 1,1 Now you need to find the number of prime numbers that result from summing the 36 pairs. Let the number of primes be p. Then the probability of Miko winning is p/36 and the probability of Kimiko winning is \[\large \frac{36p}{36}\] Then you can compare the two values of probability and judge the fairness of the game.
