Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2There are 4 kings in a standard pack. Two of the 4 kings are in black suits. The odds are the ratio of the probability of drawing a black card to the probability of not drawing a black card. Can you see what the correct choice is?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2The odds are the ratio of the probability of drawing a black card to the probability of not drawing a black card. The two probabilities are equal in this case. Can you now see what the correct choice of the odds must be?
