Hello. I’m a newcomer and have a very limited understandingof math. I guess that pre-algebra would be my extent. What I’m attempting tounderstand are simple probability (permutations and combinations) formulas asthey apply to the newly legalized activity of sports betting.

I’ve opened some probability books and have been completelyoverwhelmed.

My question is the following:

A baseball team has a 57% consistent team winningpercentage.

What are the odds of it losing, say, 3 in a row? Or 6 in arow?

I’ve went to some online probability calculators whichcontain many input fields.

I just don’t know in which field to input these numbers.

There’s probably a formula that’s right before my eyes, that,----considering my pre-algebra status—I just can’t see.

Thank you for the welcome; and I hope I can reciprocate inany way possible.

Nicky
