Hello,

I am new to the forum, and quite frankly have been out of the "classroom" for a number of years, thus I just can't seem to remember how to solve my question....so I felt compelled to get advice/answers from the folks who are well versed.

My question: If the original odds of drawing a particular item are stated as 1 in 17, with one chance taken......what are the odds of drawing if 2 chances are taken? 4 chances? 6 chances? and lastly 8 chances? Also if you folks would be so kind and also include a percentile (%) for each answer I would certainly appreciate it.

Thank each of you for your time, and I look forward to spending time on your wonderful/informative website!
