# A dice is thrown 80 times. it lands on a six 12 times. What is the probability of throwing a six?

Question asked by: knowitall

The way probability works is:

The number of possible outcomes

__________________________

The number of total outcomes

...

Therefore, probability of roling a 6, based on previous events is:

P = 12/80

Which rounds down to 3/20.

So the probability of roling a 6 from using previous events is 3/20ths!
