  1. judging by the question, this isn't a hard problem. all you have to do is roll a die 2x's. write down the first and second number into a fraction and then simplify it. for example, say if a roll a 2 and then a 5. my answer would be 2/5 and in this case i would not have to simplify it. hope this helps

  2. No. That's not how this works . THis is theoretical probability, meaning there are actually 4 numbers less than five. You're doing experimental probability. THis is incorrect

  3. In this Case, It would be 5/6, as you find that one of the numbers less than five is also a prime number. Making there one prime number apart from the numbers less than five. Add 1+4 and you get 5. Since there are six sides this makes it 5/6
