# Game of Dice

Probability
Probability puzzles require you to weigh all the possibilities and pick the most likely outcome.

Let's play a game: we'll roll two dice. If a 3 appears on either die, then we will pick them both up and re-roll them. If not, then we'll add them together. If the sum of the two dice is even, I win, and if the sum is odd, you win. What is the probability you'll win? What is the probability I'll win?

### Answer

The probability I'll win is 13/25The probability you'll win is 12/25

There are 36 possibilities when rolling two dice, 18 odd and 18 even. 11 of those possibilities have a 3 involved on at least one die and are excluded in this game. Five of the excluded possibilities are even and six are odd. This leaves us with 13/25 probability of an even number and 12/25 probability of an odd number.
