A Die is Thrown, Find the Probability of the Event of Getting a Number Less than 3. - Algebra

Question

A die is thrown, find the probability of the event of getting a number less than 3.

Solution

Sample space when a die is thrown

S = {1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6}

n(S) = 6

Let A = Getting a number less than 3

∴ A = {1,2}

∴ n(A) = 2

P(getting a number less than 3) = P(A) = `(n(A))/(n(S)) = 2/6 = 1/3`

  Is there an error in this question or solution?
