p greater than 2 = 4/6 = 2/3
p 2 or smaller and prime = 2/6 = 1/3

2/3 + 1/3 = 1

every single side of the cube is either greater than 2 or prime (two and one) so you simply will get the desired result in 100% of your rolls :)

3. Prime numbers are: 2, 3, and 5.
Numbers that are greater than 2 are: 2, 3, 4, 5, and 6.

Meaning the only number you could get that wouldn't fit the criteria would be 1.

The answer is 5/6
