Yes, except that: (To complicate things still further
)
If you assume that either die is removed randomly, then each of the 11 cases is twinned, like so:
(
1, 6)
(1,
6)
(
2, 6)
(2,
6)
(
3, 6)
(3,
6)
(
4, 6)
(4,
6)
(
5, 6)
(5,
6)
(
6, 1)
(6,
1)
(
6, 2)
(6,
2)
(
6, 3)
(6,
3)
(
6, 4)
(6,
4)
(
6, 5)
(6,
5)
(
6, 6)
(6,
6)
Where the bolded number is kept on the table. Out of those 22 cases, we can remove 10 on the grounds that a number other than 6 is removed, leaving:
(
1, 6)
(
2, 6)
(
3, 6)
(
4, 6)
(
5, 6)
(6,
1)
(6,
2)
(6,
3)
(6,
4)
(6,
5)
(
6, 6)
(6,
6)
So, out of 12 remaining cases, in 2 there's a 6 still on the table, so the odds are 2/12 or 1/6.
