# If the die is rolled 300 times, how many times would you predict a roll of a 1 or a 6?

100.
Find the probability of a 1 or a 6 in any given roll and multiply that by the number of rolls.

#### Explanation:

$\text{Probability" = "Favorable Outcomes"/"Possible Outcomes}$

$\text{Favorable Outcomes: " 1 or 6 " (2 total)}$

$\text{Possible Outcomes: " 1,2,3,4,5,or 6 " (6 total)}$

$\text{Probability of a 1 or 6 in any given roll of a die: } \frac{2}{6} \mathmr{and} \frac{1}{3}$

$\frac{1}{3}$ probability $\times$ 300 rolls $=$ 100 predicted rolls with a 1 or a 6
