A 6-sided die is rolled. What is the probability of rolling a number that is even and a 1?
I think the question's wrong, because we can't have even and a 1 at the same time while just a die is rolled
Am I right?

@daivinhtran,
It is impossible to roll an even number that is a 1.

The probability of doing something impossible is 0.
