# Math Help - Probability

1. ## Probability

My question is ;
A 6 six sided die is rolled. Find the probability of rolling a 3 OR a five.

Please tell me if I ahve this right if not please post what is the proper way to figure this out
P(Roll a 3) + P(rolla a 5)
(roll a 3) Probability is 1 out of 6 ......1/6
(roll a 5) Probability is 1 out of 6.......1/6
SO 1/6 + 1/6 = 2/6 = 2/6 or .333

IS THIS CORRECT?

if it's a fair die, yes
