Math Genius: Problem calculating probabilities in Risk

Original Source Link

This comes from this website: https://web.stanford.edu/~guertin/risk.notes.html
Its about calculating probabilities of the game Risk.

The
probability of throwing N as the “highest” dice with two dice must be the
probability of throwing “N or less” MINUS the probability of throwing
“N-1 or less” with two dice.

i don’t understand why its P(“N or less”) – P(“N-1 or less” with 2 dice).
Is there a law of probability that can explain this?
