If a die is thrown, any of the numbers from 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 may appear on the upper face. It means that each number is equally likely to occur. However, if a die is so formed that a particular face come up most often, then that die is biased. In this case the outcomes are not likely to occur equally.

Here, we assume that objects used for random experiments are fair or unbiased. A given number of outcomes are said to be equally likely if none of them occurs in preferance to others. For example if a coin is tossed, possibilities of getting head or tail are equal. A die, having numbers from 1 to 6 on its different faces, is thrown. Check the possibility of getting one of the numbers. Here all the **outcomes are eqully likely**.
