Prime numbers are 2, 3, and 5.  1 is not a prime number.

 

How many of the following rolls have at least one prime number?  Divide that by 36.     

 

1,1   1,2   1,3   1,4   1,5   1,6  

2,1   2,2   2,3   2,4   2,5   2,6  

3,1   3,2   3,3   3,4   3,5   3,6  

4,1   4,2   4,3   4,4   4,5   4,6  

5,1   5,2   5,3   5,4   5,5   5,6  

6,1   6,2   6,3   6,4   6,5   6,6
