# In rolling a die, what is the probability of getting a 1?

The probability of an event is the measure of how likely the event will occur at a given point of time. There are many kinds of events for which we can find the probability. We can find how likely we can get a particular number after rolling a die or the probability of getting heads or tails after tossing a coin using various concepts.

## Answer: The probability of getting 1 after rolling a die is 1 / 6.

Let's understand the solution more clearly and know how to apply the concepts of probability in the problem.

**Explanation:**

Since a fair die has 6 numbers on six sides:

Sample space of the event of rolling a die = {1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6} [ Sample space is the total number of possible outcomes ]

Number of 1's in the die (possibility of the event) = 1

Possibility of occurrence of 1 = 1 / 6.

### Therefore, the probability of getting 1 after rolling a die is 1/6.
