# A dice is rolled once. What is the probability that the number on top will be(a) Odd(b) Greater than 5(c) A multiple of 3(d) Less than 1(e) A factor of 36(f) A factor of 6

False

(a) All odd numbers are 1, 3, 5

No. of odd numbers = 3

Total number of favourable outcomes = 3

All Numbers on a dice = 6

Total number of outcomes = 6

(b) Number greater than 5 is 6

No. of numbers greater than 5 = 1

Total number of favourable outcomes = 1

All Numbers on a dice = 6

Total number of outcomes = 6

(c) Multiples of 3 are 3 and 6

No. of Multiples of 3 = 2

Total number of favourable outcomes = 2

All Numbers on a dice = 6

Total number of outcomes = 6

(d) There is no number less than 1

Hence, probability of less than 1 = 0

(e) Factors of 36 are 1, 2, 3, 4 and 6

No. of Factors of 36 = 5

Total number of favourable outcomes = 5

All Numbers on a dice = 6

Total number of outcomes = 6

(f) Factors of 6 are 1, 2, 3 and 6

No. of Factors of 6 = 4

Total number of favourable outcomes = 4

All Numbers on a dice = 6

Total number of outcomes = 6
