Question:

A die is thrown. Find the probability of getting a 5

Solution:

We know that,

Probability of occurrence of an event

$=\frac{\text { Total no.of Desired outcomes }}{\text { Total no.of outcomes }}$

Total outcomes are $1,2,3,4,5,6$, and the desired outcome is 5

Therefore, total no.of outcomes are 6 , and total no.of desired outcomes are 1

Probability of getting $5=\frac{1}{6}$

Conclusion: Probability of getting 5 when die is thrown is $\frac{1}{6}$
