Question:

A die is thrown. Find the probability of getting a number between 3 and 6

 

 

Solution:

We know that,

Probability of occurrence of an event

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

As 4,5 are two numbers between 3 and, so the desired outcomes are 3,6, and total outcomes are $1,2,3,4,5,6$

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

Probability of getting a number between 3 and 6

$=\frac{2}{6}$

$=\frac{1}{3}$

Conclusion: Probability of getting a number between 3 and 6 when a die is thrown is $\frac{1}{3}$
