Let's consider some simple examples of rates.
In a daily line the list of events on which rates are accepted is
resulted. You can choose any event and count on any outcome
according to rules. The rate can be "single", "express train" or "system".
Let's admit, we were interested by matches of the championship of
Spain on football:

Rates on outcomes:
1  a victory of the first command;
Õ  a drawn game;
2  a victory of the second command;
1Õ  a victory of the first command or a drawn game;
12  a victory of the first command or a victory of the
second command;
Õ2  A victory of the second command or a drawn game;
Rates with odds:
Ô1  Odds under rates at the first command;
Ê1  Factor on the rate at the first command with odds;
Ô2  Odds under rates at the second command;
Ê2  Factor on the rate at the second command with odds;
At rates with odds to quantity of goals of the command
chosen by you the odds increase. If after addition the
chosen command has won, the rate has played, if the
drawn game  return (payment with factor 1) if has lost
 the rate has not played.
Example. You put for Real Madrid with odds "2". If the
Real wins in 3 balls or more (3:0, 4:0, 4:1 etc.), the
rate will play. If the Real wins a victory in 2 balls
(2:0, 3:1 etc.) the rate is subject to return. If the
Real wins in 1 ball, will draw or ïîðèãðàåò, the rate
will not play.
Rates on
total:
Example. At rates on total you should guess quantity of
the hammered goals (more or less óêàçàíîãî totalà). I.e.
that the rate on total more than 2,5 has played, in a
match should be hammered 3 or more goals (2:1, 2:2, 3:0
etc.). That the rate on total less than 2,5 has played,
in a match should be hammered 1 or 2 goals, or the
account 0:0 is fixed.
Normal level:
Example. We will assume, you have counted $10. On a
Selta victory. Prize factor under rates on a Selta
victory  1,50. In case of a victory of a Selta payment
will make 10 õ 1,50 = $15.
Net gain: 15 (payment)  10 (rate) = $5.
The express train:
Example. We will assume, you have counted $10. On the
express train consisting of three outcomes: Real with
odds "2", Deportivo  Barcelona  a drawn game, a Selta
victory. Factors of prizes on the outcomes entering into
the express train, are multiplied: 2,00 õ 3,36 õ 1,50 =
10,08. If you have correctly predicted the Real victory
in 3 balls or more and both other outcomes, payment will
make: $10. õ 10,08 =
$100,8.,
including a net gain (minus the rate sum):
$90,8.
If the Real has won Madrid in 2 balls the factor on
payment on this outcome becomes equal 1. Thus the factor
on payment on the express train will be equal: 1 õ 3,36
õ 1,50 = 5,04. Payment will make:
$10.
õ 5,04 =
$50,4.,
from them a net gain 
$40,4.
System:
Example. We will assume, you have counted
$15.
On system 2 from 3, consisting of three outcomes: Real
with odds "2", Deportivo  Barcelona  a drawn game, a
Selta victory. I.e. actually it is the rate on 3 express
trains:
The real with odds "2",  Barcelona  a drawn game,
factor is equal to Deportivo 2,00 õ 3,36 = 6,72;
The real with odds "2", a Selta victory, factor is
equal 2,00 õ 1,50 = 3,00;
Deportivo
 Barcelona  a drawn game, a Selta victory, factor it
is equal 3,36 õ 1,50 = 5,04;
The sum of rates on each express train is equal to the
sum to all rate on system, divide on quantity of
variants (express trains). The rate sum on each express
train is equal In the given example $5. The payment sum
on system is equal to the sum of payments on all express
trains. I.e. at the correct forecast for all 3 events it
is had:
5 õ 6,72 + 5 õ 3,00 + 5 õ 5,04 = $73,8. The Net gain:
$58,8.
If forecasts only on 2 events coincide: for example,
Deportivo  Barcelona  a drawn game and a Selta victory
one express train will play only:
5 õ 5,04 = 25,2. The Net gain: $10,2. Thus we have
profit even having guessed 2 events from 3.
