The answer is 3/11. Could someone tell me how to get this. Thanks?

**PsyDAG**, Sunday, May 8, 2011 at 2:57pmThe rolls are independent. If you have already obtained a 1, you are asking for the probability of getting either a 1 or 2 to add to "less than 4."

1/6 + 1/6 = 2/6 = 1/3

With 6 possibilities for any roll of a die, there is no way of getting a denominator of 11.
