    There are only 2 other numbers that are greater than 4 on the number cube. Seeing how there are 6 possible rolls, that would make it 2/6, now just simplify that number and you get?

    Does it have to be simplified?

    1/3 I didn't apply that to the others and got the latter questions. If only I simplified them. Next times a charm!

    *I got the latter questions wrong, but that was right. Thank you!
