What is the probability of rolling
a number between zero and two on a fair die?
A fair die is cubic in shape and,
therefore, has six faces. Each of the faces is numbered from
one to six, and the opposite faces sum to seven. The probability of an event
occurring can be written as a fraction where the numerator is the number of
successful outcomes and the denominator the number of possible outcomes.
In this question, we want to roll a
number between zero and two. The only number that appears on a
die that is between zero and two is one. This means that there is one
successful outcome in this event. As there are six numbers in total
on the die, there are six possible outcomes. The probability of rolling a number
between zero and two on a fair die is one out of six or one-sixth.
