The following information is missing:Determine the probability that Frank will win the contestDetermine the probability that Frank will not win the contest
The odds are 2:9, that means 2 favorable outcomes and 9 unfavorable outcomes, which means that the total possible outcomes are 9+2 = 11
To probability of winning is: favorable outcomes/total possible outcomes = 2/11 = 0.182 or 18.2%
To probability of not winning is: unfavorable outcomes/total possible outcomes = 9/11 = 0.818 or 81.8%
Consider the complete question is,
'The odds in favor of frank McKinney winning a hot dog eating contest are 2:9,Determine the probability that Frank will win the contest,Determine the probability that Frank will not win the contest'
We know that,
Odds in favor : the ratio of the number of ways that an outcome can occur compared to how many ways it cannot occur.
So, total outcomes = 2 + 9 = 11,
Thus, the probability that Frank will win the contest =
The probability that Frank will win the contest =

answer set (b) 0.5, 3/4 80% is in order from least to greatest.
in order to compare rational numbers to each other, it is much easier if they are in the same form. typically, the best form in which to evaluate rational numbers is in decimals. in order to convert a percent to a decimal, you would divide the given percentage by 100. you can also accomplish the conversion by moving the decimal point over two places to the left. for example, the decimal value of 80% is 80/100, or 0.8. in order to convert a fraction to a decimal, you need to divide the numerator by the denominator. for example, 3/4 is 0.75. so, for choice (b) 0.5 3/4 (0.75), 80% (0.8) is the only choice in which the numbers are in order from least to greatest.
