Probability of getting a number greater than 3 = $\frac{1}{2}$
When a die is rolled, probability = $\frac{Number of favorable outcomes}{Total number of outcomes}$ When a die is rolled, total number of outcomes = {1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6} = 6 To get a number greater than 3, the favorable outcomes = (4, 5, 6) = 3 When a die is rolled, probability of getting a number greater than 3 = $\frac{3}{6}$ = $\frac{1}{2}$
