A loaded die shows the numbers 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 with frequencies 1/8, 1/8, 1/24, 1/24, 1/24, 5/8, respectively. If such a die is rolled, what is the probability that an odd number appears?

a. 1/6 b. 5/24 c. 1/4 d. 3/8 e. 1/2

Answer:

The probability of a 1 is 1/8, the probability of 3 is 1/24, and the probability of 5 is 1/24. Adding the three probabilities together gives you 1/8 + 2/24 = 5/24, or B.
