1. Suppose that you and a friend are playing cards and you decide
to make a friendly wager. The bet is that you will draw two cards
with replacement from a standard deck of 52 cards. If both cards
are hearts, you win $25. Otherwise, you have to pay your friend $2.
(a) Find the probability distribution for the winning of your bet,
say X. Hint: let x be your winning and it can take on possible
values 25 and -2. (b) What is the expected value of the bet? (c) If
this same bet is made 1000 times, how much would you expect to win
or lose? (d) Compute the variance for X. (e) Compute the standard
deviation for X. Note: The standard deviation is a measure for risk
of the game.

2. The probability of a plant surviving in Kerry’s garden is 0.7.
If she plants 19 new plants this year, (a) what is the probability
that at least 10 of them survive? (b) What is the probability that
exactly 15 survive? (c) What is the probability that less than 9
survive? (d) What is the probability that no more than 12 survive?
(e) What is the probability that no less than 10 and no more than
15 survive?

Answer #1

**Solution
: ( 1 )**

Outcome probability payoff

Both cards hearts = (13/52)(12/51) = 0.05882 + 25

Other = 1 - 0.05882 = 0.94118 - 2

**( b )**

Expected value is 0.05882(25) + 0.94118(-2) = - $0.41186

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

**( c )**

Making this bet 1000 times, you would expect to lose 1000(- 0.41186) = - $411.86

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

**Solution
: ( 2 ).**

**( a )**

Use a binomial table with n = 19 , p = 0.7 and look at the probability table

Then likelihood of n <10 is 0.0324

Hence, the probability that at least 10 of them survive = 1 -
0.0324 **= 0.9676**

Suppose that you and a friend are playing cards and you decide
to make a friendly wager. The bet is that you will draw two cards
without replacement from a standard deck. If both cards are spades,
your friend will pay you $105$105. Otherwise, you have to pay your
friend $5$5.
Step 2 of 2 :
If this same bet is made 659659 times, how much would you expect
to win or lose? Round your answer to two decimal places....

Suppose you and a friend are playing cards and you are each
dealt 3 cards. You have a 8 through 10 in your hand. You are about
to be dealt one more card. What is the probability that you are
dealt a Jack given that
(a) Your friend has no Jacks in his hand.
(b) Your friend has exactly one Jack in his hand.
Suppose you are playing Poker alone. You have four cards (6♡♡,
7♡♡, 8♡♡, and 9♡♡). You...

In this game, there is only one deck of cards.
You play with a friend and the deck of cards belongs to him/her.
Numbered cards are worth their face value, jacks are worth 11,
queen 12, kings 13 and aces 14. You have a suspicion that in this
deck of cards, your friend has replaced some high cards in the deck
with low cards.
You take 10 cards and quickly calculate the average value: 4.5.
You do the math: In...

12. Cards: Suppose you and a friend are playing cards and you
are each dealt 4 cards. You have a 10, Jack, Queen, and King in
your hand. You are about to dealt one more card. What is the
probability that you are dealt an Ace given that
a. Your friend has no Aces in his hand.
b. Your friend has exactly one ace in his hand.

A card dealer at a casino has three decks of cards: Deck #1 is a
standard 52 card deck, Deck #2 is a standard deck with the ace of
spaces removed, and Deck #3 is a standard deck with both the king
and ace of hearts removed. The dealer chooses from Deck #3 with
probability 0.9, from Deck #1 with probability 0.09, and from Deck
#2 with probability 0.01.
You play a game in which you are dealt two cards,...

We play a game with a deck of 52 regular playing cards, of which
26 are red and 26 are black. They’re randomly shuffled and placed
face down on a table. You have the option of “taking” or “skipping”
the top card. If you skip the top card, then that card is revealed
and we continue playing with the remaining deck. If you take the
top card, then the game ends; you win if the card you took was
revealed...

Suppose that you and your friend alternately play a game. Both
of your and your friend’s chance of winning in each game is 0.5.
All the outcomes are independent. Each of you will play 100 games.
Estimate the probability that you will win at least 5 more games
than your friend. Both Y and Z follows Bin(100, 0.5). Y = number of
games you win Z = number of games your friend wins.

Consider the following card game with a well-shuffled deck of
cards. If you draw a red card, you don't win. If you get a space
you win $1. If you draw a club, you win $3, if you draw the ace of
clubs you win $30.
a. Create a probability model for the amount you win at this
game.
b. Find the expected value for winning a single
game.
c. Find the standard deviation of the winnings.
