I don’t know how to solve this problem please help me for solving the problem of question no.24 of probability chapter of class 10th ncert math how i solve this question in simple way A die is thrown twice. What is the probability that (i) 5 will not come up either time? (ii) 5 will come up at least once?

1. Outcomes are:

(1, 1), (1, 2), (1, 3), (1, 4), (1, 5), (1, 6)

(2, 1), (2, 2), (2, 3), (2, 4), (2, 5), (2, 6)

(3, 1), (3, 2), (3, 3), (3, 4), (3, 5), (3, 6)

(4, 1), (4, 2), (4, 3), (4, 4), (4, 5), (4, 6)

(5, 1), (5, 2), (5, 3), (5, 4), (5, 5), (5, 6)

(6, 1), (6, 2), (6, 3), (6, 4), (6, 5), (6, 6)

So, the total number of outcome = 6Ã—6 = 36

(i) Method 1:

Consider the following events.

A = 5 comes in first throw,

B = 5 comes in second throw

P(A) = 6/36,

P(B) = 6/36 and

P(not B) = 5/6

So, P(not A) = 1-(6/36) = 5/6

âˆ´ The required probability = (5/6)Ã—(5/6) = 25/36

Method 2:

Let E be the event in which 5 does not come up either time.

So, the favourable outcomes are [36â€“(5+6)] = 25

âˆ´ P(E) = 25/36

(ii) Number of events when 5 comes at least once = 11(5+6)

âˆ´ The required probability = 11/36
