Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0you have six chances total and out of those you have three even numbers, so you make a fraction of the desired outcome divided by the total possible outcomes.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0P(even) = 3/6 = 1/2 P(less than 5) = 4/6 = 2/3 P(even and less than 5) = 2/6 = 1/3 P(even OR less 5) = 1/2 + 2/3  1/3 = 5/6

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0less than 5 doesn't include 5, so 4 out of 6 = 4/6 = 2/3

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0even = 2, 4, 6, less than five = 4, 3, 2, 1 BUT WAIT! you already counted 2 and 4! so it is 1, 2, 3, 4, and 6 for 5 desired outcomes out of 6 possibilities = 5/6
