Odds and ProbabilityIdentifying 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. OddsThe 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. Example 1Odds 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?
