(2 dice, 3 dice) -- a Simple Fraction

i throw 2 dice, (let P = Product of the numbers i get)
What is the probability that...
--- P is a multiple of 5 ?
--- P is a multiple of 10 ?
(the same thing with 3 dice)
pls tell me about another (nice) problem about Coins or Dice.
(partial Spoiler(s))
--- P is a multiple of 10 ? ---------------------
the prob. for both (2 dice, 3 dice) cases are
(surprisingly) Simple Fractions like 1/2, or 1/4 etc.
So maybe there's a different (neat) way to look at
the problem to get at these Simple Fractions directly ( very quickly ) ?
any ideas? or do you know of other problems whose answers turn out to be Surprisingly simple values (numbers) ?
