Question

Problem 4)A simplified version of the dice game 10,000 is played using 5 dice. The player rolls the 5 six-sided dice, each 1 that is rolled, the player achieves a score of 100.

A) How many possible ways are there to roll i l's over these 5 dice? (Hint: use combinations)

B) The probability of any one dice rolling to a value of 1 is 1/5 (since each dice has six sides). Use the binomial probability distribution. Calculate the probability of rolling

exactly i l's(i.e, calculate Pr(x=1) for each i)

C) The value of rolling i l's is i.100 since each 1 is worth 100. Assuming the player starts initially with 0 points and that all rolls not containing a 1 give no points. draw a probability tree representing the 6 possible monetary outcomes of this game.

D) Using the assumptions in part c, Calculate the expectation of this game.

E) If on the first roll, your only one 1 (thus obtain a value of 1000, should you roll again to attempt to get a better score.

Bunco is a group dice game that requires no skill. The objective
of the game is to accumulate points by rolling certain
combinations. The game is played with three dice, but we will
consider a simpler version involving only two dice. How do you play
two dice Bunco? There are six rounds, one for each of the possible
outcomes in a die, namely the numbers one through six. Going
clockwise, players take turns rolling two dice trying to score
points....

Chicago is a group dice game that requires no skill. The
objective of the game is to accumulate points by rolling certain
combinations (GamezBuff, 2017). How do you play Chicago? There are
eleven rounds in the game, one for each combination that can be
made by adding two dice, namely the numbers two through 12. Each
round has a target combination starting with two and going up all
the way to 12. Going clockwise, the players take turns to roll...

In Yahtzee, 5 standard dice are rolled up to three times on a
given turn. A player can choose to save anywhere from 0 - 5 of the
dice between rolls 1 and 2 and between rolls 2 and 3, meaning that
the player can set aside certain dice before rolling the remaining
dice if they choose to do so. Suppose that a given player does not
take advantage of saving die rolls and instead rolls all 5 dice
each...

You and a friend are rolling a set of 6 dice. The game works
such that if a die shows the values 1, 2, or 3 you will get a point
for that die. Each die that shows 4, 5, or 6 your friend will get a
point for.
Construct a probability model for a single roll of the dice then
answer the following.
Step 1 of 5:
What is the probability you made 2 points?
Step 2 of 5:...

A different game is also played with a 10-sided dice. The player
initially bets $1 to go in their pot of money. If the player rolls
a 5, their pot is multiplied by 5, and if they player doesn’t roll
a 5, their pot is multiplied by (1/5). A player plays 12 games.
Find the mean value of the pot at the end of 12 games
Find the most probable value of the pot at the end of 12
games....

Craps is a dice game in which the players make wagers on the
outcome of the roll, or a series of rolls, of a pair of dice. Most
outcomes depend on the sum of the up faces of two, fair, six-sided
dice.
A) Describe the sample space for all possible outcomes of
rolling two dice. How many ways are there to roll a 5?
b)Determine all possible random variable values
and the probability of those outcomes. Find the probability of...

1-The game Can't Stop uses four dice with six sides. A player
rolls all four dice then chooses
two pairs from the four dice-values. There is a big payoff for
getting snake eyes or boxcars
(6,6). Suppose the player is smart and pairs the dice that way
whenever possible. What is the
probability that he will get two 1's?
2-What is the probability that he will get either snake eyes or
boxcars?

You and a friend are rolling a set of 5 dice. The game works
such that if a die shows the values 1, 2, 3, or 4 you will get a

a point for. Construct a probability model for a single roll of the
dice then answer the following.

1) In a dice game where the player rolls two dice, a
prize is awarded if the player rolls a 2, 3, 11, or
12.
a. What is the probability that a player will win a prize in the
first 5 tries?
b. What is the expected number of games until the player wins a
prize?
2) Suppose that last year a local girl scouts group sold
one box of cookies to a household with probability
0.45.
a. If this...

The following describes a dice game played at a carnival. The
game costs $5 to play. You roll the die once. If you roll a one or
a two, you get nothing. If you roll a three or a four, you get $4
back. If you roll a five you get your $5 back and if you roll a
six, you receive $12. What is your Expected Value? Should you play
the game?
