    Question I bet // you bet

    Could you teach me how to use "I bet" and "you bet"?
    Are they the same?
    Thank you so much.

    Not a teacher.
    I think they are the same in meaning.
    "I bet he's forgotten to bring the keys!" ( I am sure that he has !)
    But " you bet" is an idiom which means certainty,something is true,right or surely happens.
    "I think people in that neighborhood are snobs"._"Oh, you bet". ( you agree with that remark : That's right!)
