It is 1/4.

false.

If the numbers are 1 to 6, there are three prime numbers in that range, a probability of 50%.

The probability of getting at least one prime number in two dice is 3/4.

The probability is 0. If both dice show the number 3 then the sum is 6 which is not odd.

Assuming you mean the sum of the two dice is a prime number, then: The possible outcomes are 2, 3, 5, 7, 11 which occur 1, 2, 4, 7, 2 times respectively. There are 36 possible outcomes → pr(prime_sum) = (1+2+4+7+2)/36 = 16/36 = 4/9 If you mean that both dice must show a prime number, then: The possible primes are 2, 3, 5 → probability of 1 die showing a prime number is 3/6 = ½ → probability both show a prime number is ½ × ½ = ¼ If you mean either or both dice could show a prime number, then: The possible primes are 2, 3, 5 → probability of 1 die showing a primes is 3/6 = ½ → probability of a die not showing a prime is 1 - ½ = ½ → probability of neither die showing a prime is ½ × ½ = ¼ → probability of either or both dice show a prime is 1 - ¼ = ¾

It is 1/4.

1 out of 2.

The probability of eventually throwing a prime number is 1. On a single throw, of a fair die, the probability is 1/2.

false.

The probability is 1 out of two. The primes you can roll are 2,3, and 5.

The probability is 5/12.
