# A Die is Thrown, Find the Probability of Getting: a Number Not Greater than 4. - Mathematics

Sum

A die is thrown, find the probability of getting:

a number not greater than 4.

#### Solution

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

Number of favourable outcomes = not greater than 4 or numbers will be 1,2,3,4 which are 4 in numbers

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

= 4/6 = 2/3
