i don't understand odds of something please help.........

    Odds are the same as probability.
    The probability of a single event is what you want to happen over all possibilities.
    All possibilities = total number of students 10+15=25
    Odds of choosing a girl 15/25=3/5
    Odds of choosing a boy 10/25=2/5
