5/36 is right....

Combinations that add up to six:
1 and 5, 2 and 4, 3 and 3, 4 and 2, 5 and 1.

So we have 5 successes.

There are 36 individual outcomes because there are 6 sides on each die and 6*6 = 36

So we have 5/36.

Foolish young ones how sooo foolish the answer is 5/36 ...

2 die = 36 possible outcomes

(5,1/4,2/ 3,3/ 2,4/ 1,5) = 5 outcomes equaling 6

5/36
