# The probability of getting a number greater than 2 on throwing a die once is _________. Fill in the blanks to make the statement true.

**Solution:**

Given, the __probability__ of getting a number greater than 2 on throwing a die once is _________.

We have to fill in the blanks to make the statement true.

A dice is thrown once.

Possible outcomes = {1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6}

Total number of possible outcomes = 6

Now, favourable outcomes = number greater than 2

= {3, 4, 5, 6}

Total number of favourable outcomes = 4

The probability of an event = Number of outcomes favourable to the event/Total number of outcomes in the experiment

Probability of getting a number greater than 2 = 4/6

= 2/3

Therefore, the required probability is 2/3
