    step 1 Possible events for 1 odd day
    The odd day may be either Sunday, Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday or Saturday. Therefore, the total number of possible outcome or elements of sample space is 7.

    step 2 Probability of 1 Odd day to be Thursday :
    The sample space S = {Sunday, Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday}
    Expected event of A = {Thursday}

    P(A) =
    {Thursday}/{Sunday, Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday}
    P(A) = 1/7
    P(A) = 0.14

    0.14 or 1/7 is probability for 53 Thursdays in a non-leap year.
