Probability is a ratio written as the number of desired outcomes divided by the number of possible outcomes. On a six-sided number cube, there are 5 chances of getting a number greater than or equal to 2 (2,3,4,5,6) and 6 possible outcomes (1,2,3,4,5,6) so your probability would be 5/6.

Firstly, the probability when tossing a coin and getting a head or tail is 1/2, then rolling a die, there are 6 sides so the chance of rolling any number is 1/6, there are 2 chances of rolling greater than 4 ie 5 and 6, so the probability of rolling a 5 or 6 in 1/3, as these are independent events you multiply the probability getting a heads of tails, (1/2) by the probability of rolling a five or six, (1/3) which gives you 1/6 or 0.1666 recurring.

The probability of rolling an odd number of a standard die is 3 in 6, or 1 in 2, or 0.5.

The answer depends on what you are rolling: a number cube or some other shape? For a die, the answer is 2/3.

fifty fifty for both.
