Q:

Holly throws a 12-sided number solid with faces labeled 1 through 12. What is the probability that Holly will roll a number greater than 12?

Accepted Solution

A:
It has been given to us that the twelve sided solid which Holly throws has faces labeled 1 through 12. Thus, there are no faces which have any face with a number greater than 12. Therefore, the event that there will occur a face with a number greater than twelve on the face is zero, 0.Thus, the the probability that Holly will roll a number greater than 12 is given by:P(greater than 12)=[tex] \frac{0}{12}=0 [/tex] or in terms of percentage it is 0%. Thus, there is absolutely no probability that that such an event will occur.
