- The probability of getting an odd (or even) number at least once in a roll of die = 1 - probability of not gettiing an odd (or even) number in any of the throws.

In one roll of die, the probability of getting an odd (or even) number is $\large\frac{3}{6} = \frac{1}{2}$ as there are three odd numbers and three even numbers.

Therefore, probability of getting an even number on three rolls of the die = $\large\frac{1}{2}$ $\;\times$ $\large\frac{1}{2}$ $\;\times$ $\large\frac{1}{2}$ = $\large\frac{1}{8}$

The probability of getting an odd (or even) number at least once in a roll of die = 1 - probability of not gettiing an odd (or even) number in any of the throws.

$\Rightarrow $The probability of getting an odd number at least once in a roll of die = 1 - probability of not gettiing an odd (i.e. getting only an even on all rolls) number in any of the throws = 1 - $\large\frac{1}{8} = \frac{7}{8}$
