*PLEASE ANSWER ASAP* Taylor is playing a board game with two friends. Using a single die, one friend rolled a one, and the other friend rolled a three. Taylor needs to roll a number higher than both friends in order to win the game, and she wants to calculate her probability of winning. What is the probability that Taylor will win the game?

To win, Taylor needs to roll a 4, or a 5, or a 6.  

 

There are six numbers that might come up in any roll.  Taylor needs one of the three named above.  

 

Therefore she has 3 chances (4, 5, or 6) out of 6 possibilities (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, or 6) to win. 

 

So, of course, the answer is 3/6 = 50%
