# A die is thrown. Find the probability of getting: 2 or 4 - Mathematics

A die is thrown. Find the probability of getting:

2 or 4

#### Solution

$\text{ When a die is thrown, the possible outcomes are 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 and 6 } .$
$\text{ Thus, the sample space will be as follows }:$
$S = \left\{ 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 \right\}$

$\text{ Let A be the event of getting a two or four } .$
$\text{ Two or four occurs once in a single roll }.$
$\text{ Therefore, the total number of favourable outcomes is 2 }.$
$\text{ Hence, the probability of getting 2 or 4 is as follows }:$
$P\left( A \right) = \frac{2}{6} = \frac{1}{3}$
