# A Die is Thrown, Find the Probability of Getting: a Number Greater than 4 - Mathematics

Sum

A die is thrown, find the probability of getting:

a number greater than 4

#### Solution

A die has six numbers: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6
∴ Number of possible outcomes = 6

a number greater than 4

Numbers of favourable outcomes = greater than four i.e. two number 5 and 6

P(E) = "Number of favourable outcomes"/"Number of all possible outcomes"

= 2/6 = 1/3
