Total outcomes of a dice = 6
we need 2 or 3
so number of favourable outcomes = 2

Probability = number of favourable outcomes/Total outcomes
= 2/6
= 1/3

Total number of outcomes = 6
probability of outcome 2:  1/6
probability of outcome 3:  1/6

these two are independent and exclusive outcomes/events.

so the probability of an outcome being either 2 or 3 :  1/6 + 1/6 = 1/3
