Question:

A die is thrown. Find the probability of

getting a 2 or a 3

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 outcomes are 2,3

Therefore, total no.of outcomes are 6 , and total no.of desired outcomes are 2

Probability of getting a 2 or 3

$=\frac{2}{6}$

$=\frac{1}{3}$

Conclusion: Probability of getting 2 or 3 when a die is thrown is $\frac{1}{3}$
