## What is the probability of the spinner landing on 1 or 3?

The probability of spinning a 1 or a 3 is 2 / 5 .

## What is the probability of the spinner landing on an even number?

The probability of landing on an even number is 2/6 = 1/3, but the probability of landing on an odd number is 4/6 = 2/3.

**What is the probability of landing on a number on the spinner that is less than 3?**

There are 6 total possible results, so the probability of rolling a number less than 3 is 26 or 13 or 0.3333 .

**What is the probability of landing on 2 or 3?**

Two (6-sided) dice roll probability table

Roll a… | Probability |
---|---|

2 | 1/36 (2.778%) |

3 | 2/36 (5.556%) |

4 | 3/36 (8.333%) |

5 | 4/36 (11.111%) |

### What is the probability of landing on 3?

A number cube (dice) has six sides labelled 1 through 6. Hence, a fair dice has a probability of 16 to land on any predetermined number 1 through 6. Therefore, to land on 3 the probability is 16 .

### How do you calculate probability?

Divide the number of events by the number of possible outcomes. This will give us the probability of a single event occurring. In the case of rolling a 3 on a die, the number of events is 1 (there’s only a single 3 on each die), and the number of outcomes is 6.

**What is the probability of getting an even number?**

Answer: The probability of getting an even number on the first side when a pair of dice is thrown once is 1/2.

**What is the probability of the spinner landing on number 8 or 1?**

If you spin the spinner once, there are 8 possibilities each time (1-8). The possibility of landing on the number 8 is 1 of these 8 possibilities. Its probability is therefore 18 . Each spin is independent.

#### How do you write the probability of a 3 on a spinner?

One section contains a ‘1’ and another section contains a ‘3’. 2 out of the 5 sections on the spinner contain a ‘1’ or a ‘3’. We can write the probability as 2 / 5 . Because 2 sections is less than half of the spinner, the spinner will land on a ‘1’ or a ‘3’ less than half of the time.

#### What is the probability of the odd numbers on a dice?

The odd numbers on a dice are: 1, 3 and 5 This is 3 out of the 6 numbers. The probability is 3 / 6. This probability can be simplified to 1 / 2.

**How do you find the probability of rolling a 4?**

Think about a dice. When a dice is rolled there are 6 possible outcomes: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 and 6. To find the probability of the event of rolling a 4, find the number of possible ways of rolling a 4 and divide it by the total number of possible outcomes.

**What is the probability of winning and losing in probability?**

Since it is certain that one of these outcomes will happen, their probabilities must add up to 1. If the probability the team wins is 0.5 and the probability it draws is 0.2 then the probability of it losing must be 0.3. The probability of an event not happening is 1 minus the probability of the event happening.
