No that is wrong. The probability when rolling a 6 sided cube and landing on one number is what you are trying to figure out. Since you role a cube, you only have the ability to land on one number at a time. The question is what is the probability of landing on a 4...So... try once more

Makeeda, I don't know what kind of game you're playing. But no matter how much we try to help you, you don't seem to understand.

Do you understand the question?

You have six equally possible results.

One of them is correct.

In other words one out of six.

Here's a picture of a number cube. It has six sides. On each side is a number -- either 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, or 6.
