What is P(even and Prime)?

I do not know how to start this can anyone help?

- math 157 -
**Marth**, Friday, January 8, 2010 at 7:23pmWhich possibilities are both even and prime? Divide that by 6, the number of possibilities for a standard die.

**Rmz**, Friday, January 8, 2010 at 7:40pmWould they both be 1/2?

**Marth**, Friday, January 8, 2010 at 7:41pmP(even and prime) means the probability of rolling a single number that is BOTH even and prime. You found P(even) and P(prime) separately.

**Marth**, Friday, January 8, 2010 at 7:57pmThe only number that is both even and prime is 2. That is 1 possibility out of 6.
