Throw the die two times.

If first die shows 1, 2, 3 and the second shows 1, 2,or 3 result is 1.

If first die shows 1, 2, 3 and the second shows 4, 5,or 6 result is 2.

If first die shows 4, 5, 6 and the second shows 1, 2,or 3 result is 3.

If first die shows 4, 5, 6 and the second shows 4, 5,or 6 result is 4.
