# Suppose we throw a die once.

(i) What is the probability of getting a number greater than 4?

(ii) What is the probability of getting a number less than or equal to 4?

Answer :

(i) Outcomes (X) = 1,2,3,4,5,6

In a dice throw number greater than 4 are 5,6 So

so total number of favorable outcomes = 2

So P(X>4) =

(ii) Outcomes (X) = 1,2,3,4,5,6

Number less than or equal to 4 are 1,2,3,4

so total number of favorable outcomes = 4

P(X) =
