The Terminator is playing a game. He has a deck of card numbered from $1-12$ and he also has two dices. There are three green cards, three blue cards, and six orange cards. Terminator already knew that the three blue cards are $9, 6, 4$ but not necessary in this order, and the three green cards are $8,7,5$ in some order. Terminator will play this game two rounds by choose one card without replacement and roll the two dice. However, at the beginning of the second round, he MUST choose either by reroll one die , re-choose one card WITH replacement or re-choose the card and choose one die to reroll. He wins if in the first rounds his sum of the card number is equal to the sum of the numbers on the dice and in the second round the sum of numbers on the dice is greater than the card number. Given that terminator is a perfectionist and he always optimize his chance of winning. Find the probability that Terminator will replace his card(He will replace the card and choose one die to reroll IF the probability of replace one card and reroll one die is equal.
