Three dice

The player throwing the three dice asked G. Galilei the question: "Should I bet on the sum of 11 or the sum of 12?" What did Galilei answer him?

Hint: write down all three triples of numbers that can be thrown and:
have a total of 11
have a total of 12

and compare probabilities.

Correct result:

p11 =  0.125
p12 =  0.1157
v =  11
