(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

Y is the larger score showing when two dice are thrown

Calculate E(Y)

2. Relevant equations

Presume the dice are fair

3. The attempt at a solution

Hmm not sure. I've listed combinations of throw events on paper but I dont think that will help. Y can never be 1. Y can never be the same as the other die?

Do I want to draw a probability distrubution table?

I've been messing around with it for a while with not much progress

Thanks :)
