    The probability of an certain possibility, is the number favoured possibilities divided by the total number of possibilities .

    say i rolled a dice and was hoping to roll a three or four . the dice has six faces so there are 6 possibilities, i only want a three or four so there are 2 favoured possibilities the probability of being successful is \[2/6 =1/3\approx33.3\%\]

    So I would divide 119 by 1?
