the chance of getting killed is 41% and the chance of survival is 59%..

If its a probability question to a school kid the answer is pretty direct, but to professionals, shouldn't they be asking for other inputs like what other variables are at play? Also are we looking at a target hit or kill? For kill the probability reduces since of all the exposed area, the bullets have to hit the critical to life parts /arteries/veins etc. Other angles at play are wind velocity, distance, even type of gun, for example a double barrel gun will have two bullet slot and if the second gun being used is a double barrel and we are shooting the target at point blank, there is no question of probability ..target will be hit...,but if the hand angle is low, shooting at the feet may not result in a kill..

From a business metrics perspective. If I am being hit by a bullet, it doesn't mean that I'll die. Maybe you'd like to clear that out first. To find the probability of being hit by a bullet, we find two cases: Hit by one bullet and hit by two bullets Hit by one bullet: (3/6)*(4/6) + (3/6)*(2/6) = 1/2 Hit by two bullets: (3/6)*(2/6) = 1/6 Answer = 2/3
