Note that there are two ways of describing odds, which are not the same. One being “one to four” and the other being “one in four.” Colon notion is usually “one to four.” Probability is a fraction, often expressed as a percentage. So the probability of something is 1⁄4, or 25%. This percentage represents the fraction of times you would expect to see an event occur, if you were to repeat the conditions a large number of times. A fraction has two parts: A numerator and a denominator. In the fraction 1⁄4, the numerator is 1 and the denominator is 4. If the odds for something is one-in-four, then the probability is just the same fraction as the odds are expression. One is four lavender oatmeal soap 1⁄4 = 25%. If the odds are 1:4, this means that if you expect to see the event occur once for every four times you fail to see it (on average over time). If you were to convert this to a probability fraction, the numerator is 1 and the denominator is 1+4=5. So the probability for this event is 1⁄5 or 20%.
