    Probability Question

    The following problem was confusing me so any help would be greatly appreciated!

    Suppose we roll two fair dice. Find the joint probability mass function of X and Y when X is the value on the first die and Y is the largest value.

    p(i,j)=1/36, i=1,..6, j=1,..6

    Now why is that?
