6 Sided Dice Probability
In my Math lesson today I learned about probability.
This was fairly easy for me because I remember doing this in Algebra 1/2.
Probability is determining the chance or probability of the event. For example our event is a 6 sided dice with numbers 1-6 where none of the numbers are the same.
First we must set up the equation.
Probability of Event = # of ways it can happen/Total # of possible outcomes
Total possible outcomes in our example = 6
We want to know the chance of rolling 5 and 4
# of ways then = 2
Event = either 5 or 4
P(5 or 4) = 2/6 = 1/3
So the answer = 1/3
See pretty easy, it only took 10 minutes for me to explain it to you.
You understood that right? I sure hope so.
