Renumbered Dice (Posted on 2004-07-20) Difficulty: 3 of 5
Two standard dice are renumbered so that each die is different, but together the pair still gives the same probabilities for rolling sums of 2 to 12 as a standard pair.

If each die is numbered with integers all greater than 0, then what are the numbers on the renumbered dice?
