    finding probabilities

    Hi, I'm having a problem finding the answer to this problem.
    The company uses a computer to select randomly employee numbers that range from 1 to 6296 . I need to find the probability of selecting a number greater then 1000. I could find the probability of selecting a numbr less then 1000, but can not find how to find the number greater then 1000. Thank you for your help.

    It's 1 minus the other probability.
