Because we see the word **AND** we will have to **multiply**, but see the "but" later on.

#### Explanation:

There are 6 possible outcomes:

Multiplying we get

**BUT!**

This only counts for the first die giving the under 5, and the second die giving the odd. The other way around has the same probability.

It's **either..or** , so we **add** .
