I am stuck on a probability question.
Please help and tell me the easiest way to find the answer to this..
I am confused and keep getting 5/6
A fair die is rolled..what is the probability of rolling an odd number or a number less than 3?
the actual answer is 2/3..
tell me how did you get here.. and what formula and what step to use.. what is the name of this method called.
Rolling odd = 3/6
Number less that 3 = 2/6
3/6 + 2/6 = 5/6
I keep getting 5/6 too.
Is there a typo in your answer sheet?
