Assuming that there are an equal number of even and odd faces on the eight-sided die, then the probability of rolling an even number is simply 4 in 8, or 1 in 2, or 0.5.

The probability of not rolling a number larger than 4 is the probability of rolling a number equal to 4 or lower: P(x≤4) = P(1) + P(2) + P(3) + P(4) = 4/6 = 2/3 = 0.6666... ≈ 66.7%

Since you need a specific number - the number 6 - twice, the probability is (1/6)2, which is equal to 1/36.Since you need a specific number - the number 6 - twice, the probability is (1/6)2, which is equal to 1/36.Since you need a specific number - the number 6 - twice, the probability is (1/6)2, which is equal to 1/36.Since you need a specific number - the number 6 - twice, the probability is (1/6)2, which is equal to 1/36.

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

Prob(Rolling a number greater than 2) = 1 - Prob(Not rolling a number greater than 2 on either die) = 1 - Prob(Rolling a number less than or equal to 2 on both dice) = 1 - Prob(Rolling a number less than or equal to 2 on a die)2 = 1 - (1/3)2 = 8/9

In one throw it is 1/3

It is 1.

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.
