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 Wednesday :

The sample space S = {Sunday, Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday}

Expected event of A = {Wednesday}

P(A) =

{Wednesday}/{Sunday, Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday}

P(A) = 1/7

P(A) = 0.14

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