    Observe the definitions of probability and odds first: Probability = (# of favorable outcomes) / (# total outcomes) Odds = (# of favorable outcomes) / (# of unfavorable outcomes)

    Yes. :) We can extract the # of favorable outcomes and the # of total outcomes from the given information, and from this calculate the # of unfavorable outcomes by simple subtraction. Plug it in and you got your answer. :)
