# A child has a die whose six faces show the letters as given below:

The die is thrown once. What is the probability of getting

(i) A? (ii) D?

**Solution:**

We use the basic concepts of probability to solve the question.

Total number of outcomes = 6

(i) Probability of getting A = Number of possible outcomes/Total number of favourable outcomes

Number of possible outcomes for the letter A = 2

= 2/6

(ii) Probability of getting D = Number of possible outcomes/Total number of favourable outcomes

= 1/6

The probability of getting A and D is 2/6 and 1/6.
