Even+odd=odd

Probability, 1st die is odd and 2nd die is even = (2/3)*(2/3) = 4/9

probability 1st die is even and 2nd die is odd = (1/3)*(1/3) = 1/9

Thus, probability that sum is odd = 4/9 + 1/9 = 5/9

One fair die has faces 1, 1, 2, 2, 3, 3 and another has faces 4, 4, 5, 5, 6, 6. The dice are rolled and the numbers on the top faces are added. What is the probability that the sum will be odd?

(A) 1/3
(B) 4/9
(C) 1/2
(D) 5/9
(E) 2/3


odd sum = even + odd integer
so
case 1 : die 1 even integer and die 2 odd integer = 2/6 * 2/6; 1/9
case 2 ; die 1 odd integer and die 2 even integer = 4/6 *4/6 ; 4/9
sum 1/9 + 4/9 ; 5/9
IMO D
