# Two dice are thrown. If it is known that the sum of numbers on the dice was less than 6, the probability of getting a sum 3, isA. B. C. D. Correct

Let A be the event that the sum of numbers on the dice was less than 6

And, B be the event that the sum of numbers on the dice is 3

A={(1,4)(4,1)(2,3)(3,2)(2,2)(1,3)(3,1)(1,2)(2,1)(1,1)

N(A)=10

B={(1,2)(2,1)

n(B)=2

Required probability =

Required probability =

Hence, The probability is
