# A die is thrown,find the probability of following event : A number less than or equal to 1 will appear

$\begin{array}{1 1}(A)\;\large\frac{1}{6}\\(B)\;\large\frac{2}{5}\\(C)\;\large\frac{4}{5}\\(D)\;\text{None of these}\end{array}$

Toolbox:
• The formula used to calculate is Probability $P=\large\frac{\text{Number of favorable outcomes}}{\text{Total number of outcomes}}=\frac{n(E)}{n(S)}$
Step 1:
Given a die is thrown
$\therefore$ The sample space S={1,2,3,4,5,6}
Let E be the event less than or equal to 1 will appear
$\therefore E=\{1\}$
Step 2:
Probability $=\large\frac{n(E)}{n(S)}=\frac{1}{6}$
Hence (A) is the correct answer.
