# Let the sample space be s = {1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6}. Suppose the outcomes are equally likely. Compute the probability of the event E = "an odd number less than 7."

**Solution:**

It is given that

Sample space s = {1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6}

n (s) = 6

Odd numbers less than 7 = {1, 3, 5}

n (E) = 3

We know that

Probability = Favourable outcome/ Total outcome

So the probability of the event E

P (E) = n(E)/ n(s)

P (E) = 3/6

P (E) = 1/2

Therefore, the probability of the event E = "an odd number less than 7" is 1/2.

**Summary:**

Let the sample space be s = {1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6}. Suppose the outcomes are equally likely. The probability of the event E = "an odd number less than 7" is 1/2.
