Convert 1 to 5 Odds to Probability

1 to 5 Odds means that there are 1 chances of one outcome and 5 chances of a different outcome.

We will call these different outcomes A and B. Thus, there are 1 A's and 5 B's in 1 to 5 Odds.

1 to 5 Odds can be written as a ratio of 1/5. Instead of a ratio, Probability shows the percent chance of the outcomes A and B.

The two formulas to convert Odds to Probabilities are as follows

(A/(A+B))*100 = A%
(B/(A+B))*100 = B%

When we plug the 1 to 5 Odds numbers into the formulas, we get:

(1/(1+5))*100 = 16.67%
(5/(1+5))*100 = 83.33%

Therefore, 1 to 5 Odds converts to the following Probabilities:

16.67% Probability of A

83.33% Probability of B

So instead of saying 1 to 5 Odds, you could say that there is a 16.67% Probability.
