**MathMate**, Wednesday, May 2, 2012 at 5:34pmThe two dice are assumed to give random and independent results.

So the outcomes for each die is equally probable.

You can construct a 6x6 table containing all 36 possible outcomes, and pick out those with a sum of 3 or 5. The total number of these favourable outcomes divided by 36 gives the required probability.

You are probably familiar with combinatoric counts of the outcomes totaling 3 or 5. The count divided by 36 also gives the required probability.
