As there are six possibilities and we are considering the probability of the outcome NOT being a number 1, or being an odd number (that is, 1,3,5)- then there are 5 other possibilities and 3 other possibilities respectively.

P (not 1) = `5/6`         or 5:6   or 83%

P (odd ) = `3/6=1/2`   or 1:2  or 50%
