    yes! I think so: the requested answer is given by the ratio: probability to have an earthquake/ probability not to have an earthquake=5/95

    odds in favor = number of favorable events/ number of unfavorable events here, favorable events = 0.05 unfavorable events = 1-0.05 odds in favor will be = 0.05/(1-0.05)

    I was supposed to have a good instructor for Elementary Probability Theory, but bailed because the last minute replacement was junk, so I completed my Calculus studies instead. :)
