Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1I'll explain that a bit more :) There's 6 sides, so 6 numbers you could get. 2 and 5 are 2 numbers out of 6, so 2 over 6 (2/6) is the probability. But, you have to simplify to get your final answer. 2 and 6 can both be divided by 1, and that gives you 1 over 3, or 1/3.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1@mathscience4ever, you always want to simplify your final answer, so it's just 1/3.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1yup :) 2/6 is technically correct, but a teacher will take off credit as there's still another step left.
