Why do we take into consideration the events that are not likely and calculate 1-(not event) to calculate answer in questions such as... What is the probability of throwing at least one six in 4 throws of a single die? 1-(5/6)

    "At least one" is a mathematical term meaning one or more. It is commonly used in situations where existence can be established but it is not known how to determine the total number of solutions.

    So we can use binomial distribution?
