Identifying the odds of something happening is a little different that calculating the probability. It is written as a ratio; however, it is not written as a fraction.

The odds in favor of an event is the ratio of the number of ways the outcome **can** occur to the number of ways the outcome **cannot** occur.

# of ways the event CAN occur : # of ways the event CANNOT occur.

This is actually a lot easier than probability. So, let's take a look at an example.

Odds and probability is pretty easy! Just remember to use a colon instead of a fraction. Also, remember that you are comparing the number of ways the outcome can occur to the number of ways the outcome cannot occur (not the total outcomes).

Are you ready to try a problem on your own?

Great job with odds and probability. This unit is almost over!
