Problem Details

Consider a system that consists of two standard playing dice, with the state of the system defined by the sum of the values shown on the top faces.
Two pairs of dice are shown.  The first pair shows a 1 and a 2, and the second pair shows a 4 and a 3.

Calculate the absolute entropy of the two-dice system.
