100/6 = 16.6 times

If you were really unlucky, infinitely many times! The probability of that happening is very tiny but it is not zero.

You will roll 600 times, of course!

Since a cube has 6 sides, you have a 4 in 6 chance of getting a number less than 5 each time you roll the dice. You would take how many times you want to roll it (360), divide it by the number of sides (6), and multiply it by 4 since you know you have a 4 in 6 chance. So it should be 240. This is strictly mathematical though and you should not consider it accurate since there are many variables when rolling it.

Total possible outcomes of one roll = 6Number of primes on the die = 3 (2, 3, and 5)Probability of a prime on each roll = 3/6 = 50% .So, in 300 rolls of a fair die, you would expect approximately 150 primes.

the answer is the probability 6o =1/6 = 60%

the probability 6o =1/6 = 60%

He should expect it 100 times.
