I am playing a dice game with my friend Kyle. Each of us roles a standard six-side die obtaining a number at random from 1 to 6. What is the probability that my number is greater than Kyle’s number?

draw a 6 by 6 grid of boxes

There are 36 boxes

but the ones along the diagonal are equal for each so only count those above the diagonal

There are six of those along the diagonal, 1,1 and 2,2 and 3,3 etc

so

I see 15 boxes above the diagonal

so I think 15/36
