  • Scott A. Pardo


Most people have heard the term “Odds”, and know that it has something to do with the likelihood of obtaining a “successful” outcome in some sort of game or trial. If P represents the probability of “success”, then 1 − P is the probability of “not success”. The odds are:
$$ O=\frac{P}{1-P} $$
