  1. You have to make table of the sample space

    1,1 1,2 1,3 ... 1,6

    2,1...............2,6

    3,1................3,6
    4,1
    5,1
    6,1

    You should have 36 entries.
    Given the sum is greater than 3 will eliminate 1,1 1,2 and 2,1

    So you are working with 33 possibilities for the denominator

    The numerator will be the number of times you find 6 as the sum in your table.
