A 6sided die is rolled. What is the probability of rolling a number that is even and a 1? It's simple but I can't solve it. I can't have even and a 1 at the same time. Because the question is "rolling a number" the question should be "rolling 2 number" So Am I right?

If you roll one die, the probability of it being even and 1 is zero, since 1 is an odd number.
