I have two 6-sided dice that when rolled will give an outcome from 1 to 12.

What numbers are on each die?

Hint: No Negative numbers used.

Enjoy!

I may not know the full answer, but at least one of them has a blank face and the other has a single dot.

Yeah, two dice; one numbered 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, and 6, and the other numbered normally 1-6, should cover all the possibilities.

There are other solutions as well.

Reason why I have a different answer is that I forgot a piece of the problem:

There has to be equal probability for each outcome.

Stanalger: Your answer of one Binary Die (0,1,0,1,0,1) and the Odd Numbered Die(1,3,5,7,9,11) is correct/ the one I have.
