# A die thrown once.find the probability of getting no. Less than 3

**Given:** A die is thrown once.

**
**

**To find:** The probability of getting number less than 3.

**
**

**Solution:**
Possible outcomes when throwing a die = {1 , 2 , 3 , 4 , 5 , 6}

Probability = $\frac{Number \ of \ favorable \ outcomes}{Total \ number \ of \ outcomes.}$

1 , 2 are less than 3 .

So, Number of favorable outcomes = 2

Total number of outcomes. = 6

Probability = $\frac{2}{6}$ [$2 \times3 = 6$]

Probability = $\frac{1}{3}$

**Therefore the probability of getting number less than 3 is $\frac{1}{3}$**
