• statistics -

Consider the outcomes as ordered pairs of the form
(teacher, student)

we could list them as follows

11 12 13 14 15 16
21 22 23 24 25 26
...
71 72 73 74 75 76
81 82 83 84 85 86

there are 48 outcomes
15 have teacher < student
6 have teacher = student
27 have teacher > student

P(teacher wins) = 27/48 = 9/16
