    Dice probability


    If you roll twofair dice, one red and one green. Whatis the probability that you get a sum of 7 given that one die is an evennumber?
    Thank you.

    Thank you.
    I suggest you use a dice table (there is one here: http://www.frontiernet.net/~rhode/QingTheory.html), restrict the sample space and then calculate the required probability.
