Agreed, and the new explanation is correct.
However I think it could be stated in simpler terms – say, "There are 9 of 36 possibilities of getting two even numbers."

Wrong wording on the dice answer

Bug description:
Binary package hint: gbrainy

One of the questions in GBrainy asks:
"Two fair 6 sided dices are thrown simultaneously. What is the probability of getting two even numbers? Answer using a fraction (e.g.: 1/2)."
And the answer according to GBrainy is:
"There are 9 of 36 possibilities of getting an even number."

Actually there are that many possibilities of getting TWO even numbers. The odds of getting just one are much higher - 3/4.
