ok, so what is the probability that the sum of 8 will appear before the sum of 7 when rolling 2 fair dices. How do I even start this?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

so with 2 fair dice, the probabality of gettng a sum of 8 is 5/36 right(2 6, 3 5, 4 4, 5, 3, 6 2)? and I got the same for the sum of 7(1 6, 2 5, 3 4, 4 3, 5 2, 6 1), 5/36.

so what do I do next?
