Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3\[ \text{Odds of an event} = \frac{\text{# of favorable outcomes}}{\text{# of unfavorable outcomes}} \] Not to be confused with probability of an event.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3So basically, we just find: # of favorable outcomes (we roll a # less than 3: a 1 or a 2.) There are 2 here. # of unfavorable outcomes (we roll something else: 3, 4, 5, or 6.) There are 4 here. These two quantities should add up to the total # of possible outcomes. Then take the fraction of the # of the favorable outcomes over the # of unfavorable outcomes. 2/4. Simplify as necessary.
