So here what’s the probability of rolling a dice and getting an even number? Okay so think about the faces of a dice our options are 1 2 3 4 5 and 6. The even numbers there are 2 4 or 6 right? We don’t care exactly what those numbers are, we just care that they are three of them. There are three successful outcomes out of 6 possible sides on that dice. I’m going to write p of even that means probability of rolling an even number is 3/6.

Reduce that fraction to ½ or you could turn into a decimal or even the percent. It’s totally up to you how you want to write your answer just make sure you are reading directions carefully incase your textbook or your teacher wants a specific format.
