### If a die is thrown, what is the probability of getting an even number?

 1 2

Step by Step Explanation:
1. Let us assume that S, E, and P are the sample space, event, and probability of getting an even number, respectively.
S = {1, 2, 3, 4, 5, and 6}
E = {2, 4, 6}
2. P(E)
 n(E) n(S)

(Since, P(E) is the probability of getting an event E, n(E) is the number of elements in the event E and n(S) is the number of elements in the sample space (S).)
P(E) =
 1 2

3. Hence, the probability of getting an even number is
 1 2
