If you roll two normal 6-sided dice, the probability of rolling a total of 7 is 1/6.
What would the probability of rolling a total of 7 be if both dice were 7-sided instead?
How about a 8-sided dice? 9-sided? 10-sided?

Hint: How many possible ways are there to make 7?
There are 49 possible combinations when rolling two 7-sided dice.
There are still six ways of making a total of 7, therefore the probability is 6/49.
In each scenario, there are still only six ways of making a total of 7, the only thing that changes is the number of possible combinations.
7-sided > 6/49
8-sided > 6/64
9-sided > 6/81
10-sided > 6/100
