Wait, how do I do this for a starting base $\neq10$?

Confused. Did you just define $x$ to be two different things? How did I get $x$'s base $b$ representation?

It would probably be better to delete you answer now, and then when everything is ready, undelete.

Honestly, I don't see how your approach is relevant to my question, nor is your answer (did you see the edit?).

There are 36 possibilities... Also, I do not want to enumerate all the possibilities. I want a formula that will do that for me

In the "classic" 2 six sided dice, not all numbers can be rolled the same amount of ways...

Just guessing, but perhaps $(\frac{k}{2})^{n}$?

Quite honestly, I have no idea what that notation means. I want to know the number of ways that a number can be rolled.
