## What is the probability of getting 5 when a dice is thrown?

Two (6-sided) dice roll probability table

Roll a… | Probability |
---|---|

4 | 6/36 (16.667%) |

5 | 10/36 (27.778%) |

6 | 15/36 (41.667%) |

7 | 21/36 (58.333%) |

## What is the probability of getting 5 in a single throw of a die?

Hence, the probability of getting #5 in a single row of dice is **1/6**.

## What is the probability of getting a number 5 in cards?

d) The probability of 5 non-ace cards is: (485)(525)=1,712,3042,598,960=0.6588, so the probability of getting 5 card at least one ace is: **1−0.6588=0.34**. There are (525) equally likely ways to choose 5 cards. For solving all but the last problem, we count the number of “favourables” and divide by (525).

## When the dice is thrown what is the probability of getting 1 and 5?

So they are mutually exclusive events, therefore their probabilities add to 1. By symmetry we expect that each face is equally likely to appear and so each has probability = **1/6**. The outcome of a 5 is one of those events and so has probability = 1/6 of appearing.

## What is the probability of not getting 3 or 5 in a single throw of a dice?

Answer: Under the standard assumptions (an unbiased 6 sided die with sides numbered 1-6), there are two qualifying numbers (3 and 5) out of 6 possibilities, so the probability is **2/6 or 1/3**.

## When a die is thrown probability of getting a number less than 5?

Hence, P(values less than 5) = 4/6 = **2/3**. To find the complement of rolling a number less than 5, we use the formula P’ = 1 – P, where P’ is the complement of P. = 1/3. Hence, the probability of the complement of rolling a number less than 5 by using a six-sided die is 1/3.

## What is the probability of getting a number 8 in a single throw of a die?

We know that there are only six possible outcomes in a single throw of a die. These outcomes are 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 and 6. Since no face of the die is marked 8, so there is no outcome favourable to 8, i.e., the number of such outcomes is zero. In other words, getting 8 in a single throw **of a die, is impossible**.
