# Assume that a die used for gaming is in the shape of a regular octahedron. The faces are numbered 1 , 2 , 3 , 4 , ... , and 8. When this die is rolled once, what is the probability that the roll producesa) an even number result? ________b) a result greater than or equal to 6 ? _____________

To determine

a)

To find:

The probability of the roll producing an even number result.

Explanation

Given:

Assume that a die used for gaming is in the shape of a regular octahedron. The faces are numbered 1, 2, 3, 4 ... 8. The die is rolled once

Calculation:

There are 8 faces in the octahedron.

Thus the possible results when a die is rolled once are {1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8}

To determine

b)

To find:

The probability of the roll producing a result greater than or equal to 6.
