Probabilty of picking higher number

I am working on a webbased game, and need help with some probability.

Player A rolls a 20 sided die with the numbers 1 through 20.
Player B rolls a 30 sided die with the numbers 1 through 30.

All numbers are represented evenly (1,2,3,etc...).

What is the probability that Player B will roll a higher number then Player A?
