What are the odds in favor of the cube showing an odd number? My answer = 1:2 Thanks.Answer by richard1234(5390)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!The probability is 1/2, but the odds measure the ratio of success to failure, not success to total (e.g. if you place a bet on something, you might say 3:1 instead of 3/4 or 1/4). The odds of showing an odd number on the die would be 1:1.
