A 6-sided 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?

Re: Independent Events

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