There are 6 marbles in the box numbered from 1 to 6

(i) Number of marble with number 2 on it = 1

\therefore Probability of getting a marble with number 2

=\frac{number\ of\ favourable\ outcomes}{number\ of\ possible\ outcomes}

= \frac{1}{6}

(ii) Number of marble with number 5 on it = 1

\therefore Probability of getting a marble with number 5 

 =\frac{number\ of\ favourable\ outcomes}{number\ of\ possible\ outcomes}

= \frac{1}{6}
