### Re: Probability exercise

For classical probability:

2 fair dice are rolled. If the sum of the 2 dice is called x, what is the probability that x is
1) prime
2) x mod 3 = 1
?

Be nice.

Hi;

In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.
If it ain't broke, fix it until it is.
Always satisfy the Prime Directive of getting the right answer above all else.
