A die is thrown once. Find the probability of getting an even number.
In a single throw of a die, the possible outcomes are 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 and 6.
Total number of possible outcomes = 6
Let E be the event of getting an even number.
Then, the favourable outcomes are 2, 4 and 6.
Number of favourable outcomes = 3
∴ Probability of getting an even number = P (E) = `3/6 = 1/2`
