comment Chances of $X$ digits in a number being odd?
Shouldn't the length of such as list be a variable in the general formula? It seems more likely that a number consisting of 12 digits has 4 odd numbers than a number consisting of only 5 digits. In both cases, the chance of that happening would be 1 in 32 according to your formula though (1/2)^(4+1).

comment Chances of $X$ digits in a number being odd?
Thank you for your reply, but I fail to see what's wrong with my question, "infinite set of integers'? The (X or more) mentioned in my question is actually predefined, but is always a number equal to or greater than X. I think that's the same situation you made of it, right?

Wow, this is much more complicated than I thought. I must admit that I hadn't even considered the involvement of numbers made up of equal digits. Not having taken any high-level maths courses, I will need some time to process your complex but interesting explanation - thank you so much for your efforts!

comment Probability of a number being greater than A and less than B?
Thanks again for adding that final sentence, perfect, exactly what I was trying to describe in language (which is less clear than your formula).

comment Probability of a number being greater than A and less than B?
Ah, so I should multiply (the chance of the number being greater than 6) by (the chance it will be less than 6 in the then remaining amount of possibilities)... Thank you very much for your explanation!
