There are 12 different ways the values can differ by 1:
(Alice's roll,Bob's roll)
(1,2),(2,3)...(5,6), and (2,1), (3,2), ... (6,5)

There are 6*6 total possible results, so (12/(6*6))=1/3 is the answer, I think

I made a post but there was a glitch. It replaced my post with yours, and then it made it so that bfrsoccer said what you said.
