I think the first question to ask is, what is the basis for determining the numbers in the third row of the block in the first place? It looks like Mathblock is taking the sum of the first two numbers and then subtracting 3 (or 6) if necessary to get a number from 1 to 3.

The second question is, why choose the numbers in the "minority" color?

The third question is, why ignore column 1 - if a particular dozen combined with column 1 has more of one color than another, then why not bet?

The fourth question is, where does 20/37 come from?

Finally, not a question, but a statement: "red and black are equally likely to occur" and "red and black will occur the same number of times" are two entirely different things.
