If you roll two dice what are the odds that you get a one or a five?

I suppose you mean, at least one of those numbers. Just calculate the probability of NOT getting any of those, and take the complement. The probability of not getting a one nor a five on a single die is 4/6 or 2/3. For two dice, the probability is 2/3 x 2/3 = 4/9. So, the probability of getting at least a one or a five with two dice is 1 - 4/9 = 5/9.
