# A child has a die whose 6 faces show the letter given below:

The die is thrown once. What is the probability of getting (i) A, (ii) D?

Answer :

(i) Total letter on the dice are: 6

Let E be the event of getting letter ‘A’

Then, the numbers of favourable outcomes are = 3

∴ P (getting letter ‘A’) = P (E) = 3/6 = 1/2 or 50%

(ii) Total letter on the dice are: 6

Let E be the event of getting letter ‘D’

Then, the number of favourable outcomes is= 1

∴ P (getting letter ‘D’) = P (E) = 1/6 or 16. 67%
