Bayesian odds

This is a very short article on Bayesian odds. Bayes' theorem is used to derive a formula for the ratio of posterior probabilities \(P(A | C) / P(B | C)\) in terms of the prior probabilities \(P(A\)), \(P(B)\) and the conditional \( P(C | A)\) and \(P(C | B)\). An application is given to a ball and urn model. Unlike other Cut-the-Knot articles, this one uses MathJax for the mathematical notation, so the notation is rendered nicely.
