Step 1
Total number of cards $$\displaystyle={52}$$
One card is drawn randomly.
Step 2
P(face card):-
Number of favourable outcomes $$\displaystyle={12}$$ (Face card)
P( face card ) $$= \frac{12}{52} =\frac{3}{13}$$
P(not face card) $$\displaystyle={1}-{\left({\frac{{{3}}}{{{13}}}}\right)}$$
$$\displaystyle={\frac{{{10}}}{{{13}}}}$$
To convert probability to odds divide the probability by 1 - that probability
Odds in favor of drawing a face card are $$\displaystyle{\frac{{{\frac{{{3}}}{{{13}}}}}}{{{\frac{{{10}}}{{{13}}}}}}}={3}:{10}$$
Odds in favor of not drawing a face card are $$\displaystyle{\frac{{{\frac{{{10}}}{{{13}}}}}}{{{\frac{{{3}}}{{{13}}}}}}}={10}:{3}$$
