Anyone interested in joining the military is required to take the Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery (ASVAB) exam. The Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery (ASVAB) is also used for those who are not wishing to enter the military to help determine what type of career is best fit for them. The ASVAB also helps to identify the individual’s strengths and weaknesses as well as their interests.

Individuals taking the ASVAB exam will be tested based on their knowledge of:

• general science

• arithmetic reasoning

• word knowledge

• paragraph comprehension

• mathematics knowledge

• electronics information

• auto and shop information

• assembling objects

• mechanical comprehension

*On a six-sided die, each side has a number between 1 and 6. What is the probability of throwing a 3 or a 4?*

a. 1 in 6

b. 1 in 3

c. 1 in 2

d. 1 in 4

**Answer**

B: On a six-sided die, the probability of throwing any number is 1 in 6. The probability of throwing a 3 or a 4 is double that, or 2 in 6. This can be simplified by dividing both 2 and 6 by 2. Therefore, the probability of throwing either a 3 or 4 is 1 in 3.
