    P(6) = 5 / 36

    ways to roll two dice: (6 * 6) = 36

    ways to roll 6: (1, 5), (5, 1), (2, 4), (4, 2), (3, 3)

    Assume you roll a fair dice twice. Two rolls are independent and identically distributed, with probability of rolling a particular number being 1/6. So, for instance, the probability of rolling 5 and then 2 is P(5,2) = P(5) ⋅
