just find 2/5 of 100. Divide 100 by 5 which is 20 then multiply that by the numerator (which is 2) 20 x 2 = 40 times was how many times the number 6 came up

Answer:40 timesStep-by-step explanation:Let the number of times 6 came up be.The formula for calculating probability that an event occur

= number of times the event occur / sample space.

That is :

P(x) = n(x) / n(s)

From the question ,

n(s) = 100

P(6) = 2/5

n(6) = ?

substituting into the formula , we have :

2/5 = n(x) / 100

Therefore :

n(x) = 100 x

n(x) = 200/5

n(x) = 40

Therefore : 6 came up 40 times
