Question

Suppose that the only reasonable contenders for the NCAA championship are Villanova, Duke, and Michigan. You read on an online article that the odds are 3:1 against Michigan and 5:1 against Duke, what are the odds in favor of Villanova?

Answer #1

if odds in favour = a:b

ratio of winning = a / (a+b)

3:1 odds against michigan

therefore, 1:3 odd in favour of michigan

ratio of matches won by michigan = 1/(1+3) = 1/4

5:1 odds against duke

therefore, 1:5 odd in favour of duke

ratio of matches won by duke = 1/(1+5) = 1/6

therefore ratio of matches won by villanova = 1 - 1/4 - 1/6

= 24/24 - 6/24 - 4/24

= 14/24

odds of winning for villanova = 14 : (24-14)

= 14 : 10

**odds of winning for villanova = 14 : 10**

consumed in a year by an average person in Michigan rose from 60lbs
to 70lbs.
What is the income elasticity of beef in Michigan? (use

At a dishonest backroom gambling establishment, they have a
spinning wheel. The wheel has the numbers 1 through 4. The wheel
has 20 number places that are equally likely to be landed on by the
spinner. However, there are an unequal number of numbers on the
wheel. For example, there are only two 1’s on the wheel. For this
problem assume you bet on the spinner landing on 1.

On an intuitive level, do the economist estimates of the
elasticities seem reasonable? Briefly explain.
