What are the odds of rolling less than 3 on a standard number cube? 1/2 4/5 1/3 5/6
could you tell me what all the odd numbers that are less than 3?
it doenst need to be an odd number less than 3, just a number less than 3
A standard. Cube. Consists. Of. Number 1-4.
it says less than 3 so then there is only 1 odd number under 6
odds means probability
but this says less than 3
I think you typed the question wrong or something
its fine, a standard number cube has 6 sides, 1,2,3,4,5,6 less than 3 would be 1,2
lets just call it a dice...
nope thats what the book says
\[ \text{Odds of an event} = \frac{\text{# of favorable outcomes}}{\text{# of unfavorable outcomes}} \] Not to be confused with probability of an event.
anyways you are correct
So basically, we just find: # of favorable outcomes (we roll a # less than 3: a 1 or a 2.) There are 2 here. # of unfavorable outcomes (we roll something else: 3, 4, 5, or 6.) There are 4 here. These two quantities should add up to the total # of possible outcomes. Then take the fraction of the # of the favorable outcomes over the # of unfavorable outcomes. 2/4. Simplify as necessary.
