In Exercises 10 to 12, the probability is the ratio n u m b e r   o f   f a v o r a b l e   o u t c o m e s n u m b e r   o f p o s s i b l e     o u t c o m e s . Use Example 2 of this section as a guide.Assume that a die of the most common shape, a regular hexahedron, is rolled. What is the likelihood thata) a “2” results?b) an even number results ?c) the result is larger than 2?

To determine

a)

To find:

The probability of a “2” result on rolling a die.

Explanation

Approach:

If there are n elementary events associated to a random experiment such that m of them are favorable to an event A then,

Probability of happening of A=mn=Number of favorable outcomesTotal number of outcomes

Consider a die in the shape of a regular hexahedron. The die will have all six faces as congruent squares

To determine

b)

To find:

The probability of an even number result on rolling a die.

To determine

c)

To find:

Probability of a result larger than 2 on rolling a die.
