**Reiny**, Thursday, March 25, 2010 at 3:19pmthere are 12 cards which are either 5,6, or 7

so Prob (a 5,6,or7) = 12/52 = 3/13

so prob (not a 5,6,or7 ) = 10/13

Odds in favour of a 5,6,or7 = (3/13)/(10/13) = 3/10

or 3 : 10 , the usual way of stating odds

Now try the others the same way, let me know what you get
