it's actually 2/3

4 chances out of 6.
Thus, 2/3.

4/6, or 2/3 for simplification.

Also, what's wrong with the reply section on this board, why doesn't it pop up anymore?

Jesus Christ OP, how old are you?

>>16490434
I have not done math in a long time. Is this right, guys? Not OP.

A dice has six sides. Each with a corresponding value from 1-6.

The first dice is a given value, 5.

5 + X = <10

Well, it has to be all numbers <5, because 5 + 5 = 10.

4, 3, 2, 1

Four options out of the possible six faces on the second dice.

4/6

OP, seriously, what's up?

Critical thinking skills, which are required for programming, can only be developed by solving problems by yourself.
