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

Given two unmarked, cubic dice and using the set of whole numbers, place numbers on each die such that only the following sums can be thrown: 5, 7, 9, 11, 13, 15, 17, 19, 21, 23, 25, 27 and the probability of rolling each sum is the same.

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution

If I have one die with even numbers (2, 4, 6, 8, 10, and 12) and one with odd (3, 5, 7, 9, 11 and 13) it works up to number 25...but not 27. And I am lost on how the probability of each sum is the same.

Thanks in advance for any help you can give!
