None. The probability of a continuous variable taking any particular value is always zero. The probability is greater than zero only when an interval (or range) is specified.

Zero

If zero is the number on one of the 9 sides, then the probability is 8/9 = 88.9% (rounded)If zero is not the number on any one of the 9 sides, then the probability is 100%.

Depends on how many nickels you have. If you have less than three nickels the probability is zero. If not, 100% (should you decide to throw them).

It can be any number greater than zero.

I don't think entropy can get less than zero

No; because probability can never be less than zero.

Zero is the smallest probability.

The probability of rolling a number less than 1 on a standard 6-sided die is zero. It will not happen.

Zero

The probability is zero. No number can be less than 3 and greater than 4.

A positive value is a value that is greater than zero. A negative value is a value that is less than zero.

The absolute value of a number IS its distance from zero: not greater nor less than it.

Because probability is measured from zero to one, where zero means something cannot happen and one meaning it will definitely happen. This can also be looked at as there being a 0% chance or 100% chance of it happening. So obviously there can not be less of a chance than it definitely not happening, so it cannot be less than zero.
