In the boy/girl paradox, if at least one child is a boy, and we remove that boy, what are the odds of having two boys left over ... the answer is zero. Or are we asking, after we remove the boy, what are the odds of the one left being a boy ... that's 1/2.
We don't care about the odds of having at least one 6, that's 11/36. A least one 6 is a certainty, we pick the die up and examine the remain die in isolation, the odds of a 6 is 1/6.
