When a standard die is rolled, find the probability of getting

a. A5

b. A number larger than 2

c. An odd number (4–1)

Step 1 of 4:

It is given that a die is rolled.

The possible outcomes of this event are

S={1,2,3,4,5,6}

Using this we need to find the required values.

Step 2 of 4:

(a)

Here we need to find the probability of getting a 5.

The probability is given by

p=

We know that there are 6 outcomes to this event.

The probability of getting each outcomes is .

There is one 5 in the sample space.So the probability of getting a 5 becomes

P(getting a 5)=

=0.1667

Thus, the probability of getting a 5 is 0.1667.
