0.46875 ; 1.133 ; $17 ;19.27

Step-by-step explanation:

Number of slots = 32

0, 00, {1,.. 30}

Odd outcomes = {1, 3, 5, 7, 9, 11, 13, 15, 17, 19, 21, 23, 25, 27, 29}

1.) probability of winning :

P(winning) = number of odd outcomes / tot possible outcomes

P(winning) = 15 / 32 = 0.46875

2.)

Odds against winning :

Number of losing outcomes / number of winning outcomes

Not odd numbers / odd numbers = 17 /15 = 1.133

C.)

Payoff odd = 1:1

If bet value = $17 ;

Profit made on winning = $17 * 1 = $17

d.)

If Payoff odd = odd against winning = 17 / 15

Profit on $17

17/ 15 * 17

(1.1333333) * 17

= 19.27
