    Part (a)

    Answer:  2/3

    —————

    Work Shown:

    There are 6 numbers on the die total, 4 of which are factors of 6 (1,2,3,6)

    So 4/6 = 2/3 is the answer.

    =================================================

    Part (b)

    Answer:   1/3

    —————

    Work Shown:

    There are 5 purple cubes out of 15 total

    5/15 = 1/3

    =================================================

    Part (c)

    Answer:   1/13

    —————

    Work Shown:

    There are 52 cards, 4 of which are kings (one of each suit)

    4/52 = 1/13 is the probability of getting a king

    we do not include joker cards

    =================================================

    Part (d)

    Answer:   1/26

    —————

    Work Shown:

    E = event space

    E = {8H, 9H} there are two items in the event space

    The notation “8H” means “8 of hearts”.

    S = sample space

    S = set of 52 cards

    Divide the number of items in set E over the number of items in set S

    2/52 = 1/26

    Again we do not include joker cards.
