Default Question from a math genius.

How do I convert percentages to odds. If a flush draw is 35% on the flop, how do I convert that to odds. It's around 5-1 on the flop, then close to 5-1 on the river, but how do I arrive at the odds of the flush hitting on either the flop or turn?

I actually have a master degree in business, but I must have slept through some math classes.

35% means odds of 65:35 against, or 65/35:1 = 1.86:1.

The 35% is the chance of hitting on either the turn or the river, and comes from 9/47 + (38/47)*(9/46) or from 1 - (38/47)*(37/46).
