In order to find the probability when a fair die is rolled, we should first look at the total possible outcomes for this event.

Total possible outcomes = {1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6} ==>implies that there is a possibility for any of these 6 numbers to occur.

Out of these outcomes the chances of getting only the number ‘5’ is 1 out of 6.

When a coin is tossed the possible outcome is heads or tails==>which implies ‘2’ outcomes.

Hence, chances of getting a heads=

Similarly, when a fair die is rolled, there is a possibility of getting {1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6} for any of these 6 numbers to occur.

Hence, the chances of getting a ‘4’=
