A fair number cube with the numbers 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, and 6 is rolled. Homework Help ✎

1. What is the probability of getting an even number?

How many even numbers are there on the cube? How many possibilities are there for what can be rolled?

There are 3 even numbers (2, 4, 6) and 6 possibilities, so the probability of rolling an even number is

$\frac{3}{6} \text{ or } \frac{1}{2}$

2. What is the probability of getting a factor of 6?

Follow the same steps as outlined in part (a).

1, 2, 3, and 6 are all factors of six.
