Just reduce your fraction. Odds = favorable over unfavorable. 13 hearts, 39 not hearts = 13 favorable, 39 unfavorable.

NO. The answer is true. The answer is 13/39 or 1/3 or 1 to 3

The probability of getting a heart is 13/52 The odds are 13/39
whpalmer4

If p is the probability of the win, and 1-p is the probability of the loss, the odds are \[\frac{p}{1-p}\] so here it would be .25/.75 or 1:3 which is equivalent to 13:39.
