Return two random integers between 1 and 6, inclusive, to simulate rolling 2 dice.

**Example**

[x1,x2] = rollDice(); x1 = 5; x2 = 2;

is the solution correct???

To clarify the problem statement, it would be good to specify the dice are fair.

I've done something like this on an arduino for one of my classes

The first test case for this problem is flat out statistically terrible! In fact, it is quite easy for that assertion to fail on a well defined set of uniform dice! So if you submitted a "valid" solution to this trivial problem, and it failed, then re-submit it. It may well succeed the second time you try, with no change to your function at all.

Use randi function instead of rand.

solution is correct in my opinion.

rand(1,1)*5+1 will produce random numbers uniformly distributed between 1 and 6; round will convert values from 1 to 1.5 to 1, and values from 1.5 to 2.5 to 2, so 1 will occur only about half as often as 2. Overall, 1 and 6 will occur only about half as often as 2, 3, 4, and 5.

my second ever pseudo random number generator (the first wasn't very random) http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Linear_congruential_generator

This is not two random rolls. The second number will never match the first, so the statistical distribution is not correct, although the test suite is not sophisticated enough to catch it.
