    Well on a die there is number 1,2,3,4,5,6. both 3 & 6 are multiples of three. So there is a possibility of you rolling the 2 out of 6 giving the probabilitty 2/6, which simplifies to 1/3.

    in other words, there are two multiples of 3 on one die, and six sides in total, so it is the ratio of the number of multiples of 3 to the total number of faces

    so never give an answer like 2 or 3 in plain english this says you would roll a 3 or 6 about one third of the time
