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

**Answer:**

1 |

2 |

**Step by Step Explanation:**

- 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} *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 - Hence, the probability of getting an even number is
1 2
