  1. Which possibilities are both even and prime? Divide that by 6, the number of possibilities for a standard die.

  3. P(even and prime) means the probability of rolling a single number that is BOTH even and prime. You found P(even) and P(prime) separately.

  4. so, because there are the same amount of even and odds wouldnt that make it a 1?

  5. The only number that is both even and prime is 2. That is 1 possibility out of 6.
