    Probability:

    The study of probability helps us figure out the likelihood of something happening. For instance, when you roll a dice, you might ask how likely you are to roll a 4.Since there are 6 numbers on a dice and only 1 number 4 the probability would be 1 out of 6.

    The probability of the occurrence of an event can be expressed as a fraction or a decimal from 0 to 1.

    So 1 out of 6 can be written as:

    1/6 - fraction
    0.16666-> - decimal
