What is the probability of rolling a number greater than or equal to two on a regular die?
00:00:05.980 --> 00:00:08.130
A regular die has six sides.
00:00:08.840 --> 00:00:16.380
The six sides are labelled one, two, three, four, five, and six.
00:00:16.800 --> 00:00:21.660
And we want to know the probability of rolling a number greater than or equal to two.
00:00:22.170 --> 00:00:30.150
So in order to solve for this probability, we need to take the number of sides that are two or greater and divide by the total number of sides.
00:00:30.660 --> 00:00:38.100
Let’s begin by listing the sides that are two or greater: two, three, four, five, and six.
00:00:38.610 --> 00:00:43.560
And the total number of sides, we’ll need to include the sides one through six.
00:00:44.100 --> 00:00:46.820
So how many sides were two or greater?
00:00:47.120 --> 00:00:50.060
One, two, three, four, five.
00:00:50.510 --> 00:00:52.210
And then how many total sides were there?
00:00:52.540 --> 00:00:54.220
As we already know, six!
00:00:54.750 --> 00:01:02.400
So the probability of rolling a number greater than or equal to two on a regular die would be five-sixths.
