Quick Easy Probibility Question

Post  Mira Holford on Tue Oct 07, 2008 8:00 am

What is the probability that a six-faced die will roll a prime number? Answer in percentage form.

Answer:
Spoiler:
First you find out the possible number of outcomes which is 6. Then you find out how many of the 6 are prime. There are 3 prime numbers between 1 and 6 (2,3,5). Therefore, the answer is 3/6, or 50%.

The End

Okay, this one shouldn't be that hard.


Spoiler:
Numbers on dice: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6

Prime numbers on dice: 2,3 and 5.

1 is not a prime number!

3/6=1/2
