Suppose you roll a number cube. Find the probability. P(3 or 4)

## Answers (1) 2021-01-03
1. The number of times (r) that a 3 or 4 appers on a number cube is 2, while the total number of sides (t) on a number cube is 6
r=2, t=6
2. To find the probability of rolling a 3 or 4, simply place the number of desired outcomes (r) above the number of total outcomes (t)
$$\displaystyle\frac{{r}}{{t}}=\frac{{2}}{{6}}=\frac{{1}}{{3}}$$
