Default for the math majors

How are the percentages (that particular hands are favorites over others) determined? How are the percentages reached? How does one determine what the percentage chances of winning with J6o comparted to K8s or ANY other combination. Sklansky reccommends that "serious" players should purchase a computer program (most likely b/c the computations are elaborate) that allows input of any amount of hands and then pops out a number given the input. However, someone must have programmed this software with an algorithm that determines these numbers. How can I do this?
I understand the work involved must be lengthy to involve a software program but humor me and explain how this is done.
thank you
