2 + 3 = 5 > = 5; 2 + 4 = 6 > =5; 2 + 5 = 7 >= 5; 2 + 6 = 8 >= 5; 3+2 = 5 >= 5; 3 + 3 = 6  >= 5; 3 + 4 = 7  >= 5; 3 + 5 = 8  >= 5; 3 + 6 = 9  >= 5; 4+1 = 5  >= 5; 4+2 = 6  >= 5; 4+3 = 7  >= 5; 4+4 = 8  >= 5; 4+5 = 9  >= 5; 4+6 = 10  >= 5; 5+1 = 6  >= 5; 5+2 = 7  >= 5; .............. 6 + 6 = 12  >= 5; Number of ways it can happen = 27; Total number of outcomes = 6*6 = 36; Probability of an event happening = Number of ways it can happen / Total number of outcomes => Probability = 27/36 = 0.75;
