## Problem 2

Two dice appear to be normal dice with their faces numbered from $1$ to $6$, but each die is weighted so that the probability of rolling the number $k$ is directly proportional to $k$. The probability of rolling a $7$ with this pair of dice is $\frac{m}{n}$, where $m$ and $n$ are relatively prime positive integers. Find $m+n$.

## Solution

It is easier to think of the dice as $21$ sided dice with $6$ sixes, $5$ fives, etc. Then there are $21^2=441$ possible rolls. There are $2\cdot(1\cdot 6+2\cdot 5+3\cdot 4)=56$ rolls that will result in a seven. The odds are therefore $\frac{56}{441}=\frac{8}{63}$. The answer is $8+63=\boxed{71}$
