Let's Do Math!

Maria and Cassie were playing a game, and Cassie needed to roll exactly a five to win.

Cassie said, "Maria, do you think I should roll both dice or just one? Would I have a better chance of winning if I just rolled one?

Maria answered, "I think we can figure it out with math."

Help Cassie and Maria figure the probability of Cassie getting a 5 both ways.
