The first cube can land on any one of 6 numbers.

The second cube can land on any one of 6 numbers.

So there are (6 x 6) = 36 possible outcomes of each roll.

Out of all 36 possibilities, the successful ones are:

1 . . . 3

2 . . . 2

3 . . . 1

There are 3 of these.

So the probability of success is 3/36 = 1 in 12 = 81/3%

or

The odds of success are 11 to 1 against.
