a) the only even prime is the number 2 so prob = 1/6 b) primes less than 5 are : 2 and 3 so prob = 2/6 = 1/3 c) if not a 6, then it must be: 1, 2, 3, 4, or 5 how many of those are prime? d) which of 1 or 2 is prime ? e) how many even's < 4 are prime? etc.

math
Since cost usually varies with the area and the area is proportional to the square of the corresponding sides, the area would be 4 times as large, thus the cost would be 4($1.5) or $6.00 ( ratio of sides = 2:1 so ratio of areas = 2^2 : 1^2 = 4 : 1 ratio of costs = 4 : 1 )

No, the area of similar shapes is proportional to the square of the corresponding sides So 2:1 ----> 2^2 : 1^2 = 4 : 1 The area would be 4 times as large, or quadrupled. Proof: area of original = 5*3 = 15 new sides are 10 and 6 new area = 10*6 = 60 and 60 = 4 times 15
