Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0(for each dice)( 1/6 + 1/6)  1/36 (because there's a double) = 11/36

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0:( I don't get it the events are not mutually excessive so it should be 20/36 but if the test writer is dumb it might be 26/36...
