I'm working on a paper, and want to express how often something will occur. I'm not a math guy (obviously):

If there are 131,800 homes and one home burns down everythree years, how often will any particular home burn assuming each home will only burn once? What ways can I expressthe chances of this occurring? For example, in my simple mind, I get: 3 x 131,800= one time in 395,400 years.
