Probability is the ratio of favorable outcomes to total outcomes.

PART A:

There is 1 favorable outcome (4)

There are 6 possible outcomes (1 to 6)

So the probability is 1/6

PART B:

There are 4 favorable outcomes (1, 2, 3, 4)

We already know the total possible outcomes is 6.

You can figure out the fraction and reduce it.

If you are struggling on problems like these, you need to do a better job of engaging your own brain and not relying on others to give you the answer.
