    The probability that a dice does show 5 or 6 is 2/6. Therefore, the probability that a dice doesn't show 5 or 6 is 4/6. If 4 dice are thrown, the overall probability will be 4/6 repeated 4 times. Imagine if it's just 2 dice, it would be 4/6 * 4/6. Same logic applies here.

    Might have made it a bit too easy...
