Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Probability of rolling an even number means the desired outcome is 2, 4, or 6. This is a mutually exclusive event, since we can't land on 2, 4, or 6 at the same time. Therefore, add the probabilities of each. 1/6 + 1/6 + 1/6 = 3/6 simplify to 1/2

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0to calculate the probability, you have to write a fraction with desired outcome/total possible outcomes

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0if we want an even number as our desired outcome, then there are only 3 possibilities of that happening (2, 4, or 6). Put that 3 over the total possible outcomes (6). 3/6 is your answer
