Explanation:
To determine the probability of an event happening, there are two values you need to determine first.

How many possible outcomes are there altogether?
In this case with a toss of the die, there are#6# outcomes, being the numbers from#1# to#6# . 
Of the possible outcomes how many of them will meet our conditions? IN this case we want a number equal to or less than
#3# , ... the numbers#1,2,3# . There are#3# desired outcomes.
Write a probability as a fraction and give in its simplest form.
Explanation:
assuming that the numbers on the standard number cube are
the numbers less than or equal to
this means that there are
probability = number of outcomes possible / total number of outcomes
