Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2I assume you know a die has 6 sides, and 2 out of the 6 sides are "winners" (for this problem)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2probability is between 0 (never) and 1 (always) First step, what is the chance of getting tails ( a coin has 2 sides, and 1 side is tails)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2we want a number (fraction) the top part of the fraction are the number of ways to succeed, the bottom number is the number of possible outcomes. With a coin, which has 2 sides heads and tails, there is one side that counts as success  the tails side so 1 goes in the top what goes in the bottom ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2yes. there are 2 possible outcomes (heads or tails) so the chance of getting a tail is 1/2

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2now find the chance of rolling a 2 or 3. How many numbers count as success? If we get a 2 or 3 we "win". that is 2 ways to win. that means 2 goes in the top now put in the total number of outcomes you can roll . any idea?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0it would be the number of all so a 6 or 8 *Blonde moment*

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so the bottom number would be 6

phi

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2yes, and what is the chance of rolling a 2 or 3 ? (you have the top and bottom, so you can write the fraction)
