if a die is rolled.What is the probibil ty that an even number divisible by 3 appears

There are 6 numbers on a die, of which 3 are even, thus the probability is 3/6 or 1/2 or 50%.

Possible outcomes of one roll = 6.Probability of an even number on one roll = 3/6 = 0.5 .Probability of an even number on the second roll = 0.5 .Probability of an even number on the third roll = 0.5 .Probability of an even number on all three rolls = (0.5 x 0.5 x 0.5) = 0.125 = 1/8The probability of at least one odd number is the probability of not gettingan even number on all 3 rolls. That's (1 - 1/8) = 7/8 or 0.875 or 87.5% .

1/2

3/6 or 50%. if simplified it would equal 1/2.

The probability of getting an even number on a six sided dice is 3 out of 6 or one half because the only even numbers are 2,4,6 (which are all even).

if a die is rolled.What is the probibil ty that an even number divisible by 3 appears

The probability of getting an even number on both dice is (2/6) * (2/6) = (4/36) = 1/9. The probability when rolling two dice of getting one even number but not a "2" is 10/36, which is 5/18.

It is 0.5

It is 1/2.

The probability of rolling a 2 is 1 in 6. The probability of rolling an even number is 3 in 6. The probability of doing both, on two rolls, is 3 in 36, or 1 in 12.

The probability of getting a 2 is (1/6) as there are 6 sides, the probability of then getting an even number 2,4, or 6 is 3/6 or (1/2). Therefore those 2 even occurring together are 1/6 X 1/2 =1/12 or 8.5%.
