A 6 sided die having its side numbered from 1 till 6 is tricked such that the probability of appearence of each side is proportional to its number.
What is the probability of each of the numbers 1,2,3,4,5 and6???

Change the model. Think of a box of numbered cards with one 1, two 2's, six 6's.
Now draw out one card, note its number, return it to the box. Shuffle well.

p(1)=1/21
p(2)=2/21
P(3)=3/21
