Hi. I need to do a math thing (i´m not a very good explainer) that uses statistics, and i´m doing it about Yugioh card rarities.
So, please if you can tell me with what possibility you can get cards of certain rarity you can get from booster buiyng packs. If you´d tell me, i´d really appreciate it.

Rarities are on the pack, however you can look here: http://yugioh.wikia.com/wiki/Rarity

This will give you all the info on card rarities you'll need.

Most of the time its 8 to 1. 8 commons to one rare. Going up from there I'd reccomend the website.

Let's take Shining Darkness for example.

Quote:
9 cards per pack, 24 packs per box
Includes 100 cards:

* 1 Ghost Rare
* 8 Secret Rares
* 10 Ultimate Rares
* 10 Ultra Rares
* 14 Super Rares
* 20 Rares
* 48 Commons


In each pack, you're guaranteed a Rare. So, out of 9 cards, one's a Rare. After that, out of the 8 remaining cards, you have a chance 1 will be super rare or higher. I won't do the maths for you, but will give you everything I can.

Super Rares have a Ratio of 1:5.
Ultras are 1:12.
Secrets are 1:23
Ghosts are 1:36

What it all means, is that in a box of 24 boosters, you should get around 4-5 supers, 2 ultras, 1 or maybe 2 secrets, and if you're lucky a ghost rare (the rates shows that there's would be an average of 2 ghosts per 3 boxes).

Ultimate rares, I dunno the rates, but I believe there's a chance you get them instead of another rarity (if a card can be ultra or ultimate, you could get it as an ultimate, but would count as an ultra in the box)

Welcome to the site yugi!! :D It's good to have you aboard!!

Thanks for giving him some really good information Kyduk and Linkin :o. It is appreciated. If you go further than the rarity ratios then there is a very good article in the guide section on drawing probabilities.

Just a little thing, isn't Ghost Rare 1 in 36 BOXES, not packs?

I've seen at least 10 different reports in the look what i pulled thread of people pulling ghosts and I thought they were all either liars or they should be buying lottery tickets, not children's trading cards.

Nominated for making me chuckle.

I'll put it in the epic quote guide now. :D I don't think a ghost rare has that kind of rarity. It should be listed somewhere. Are the rarities tracked via wikia?

The odds of getting one are 1:36 booster boxes.
