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
You received this bug notification because you are a member of Ubuntu

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.
