# The probability of getting number 6 in a throw of a dice is 1/6. Similarly the probability of getting a number 5 is 1/5. Is the given statement true or false?

**Solution:**

When a die is thrown, total outcomes are 6

The face 6 is only 1 in 6 faces

Therefore, probability of getting face 6 is 1/6

Face 5 is also one of the outcomes from the 6 outcomes

So, its probability is also 1/6

Hence, the given statement is false
