Question

B: A game is played with two strange dice.

Dice A: Five sides display "4" and one side displays "1"

Dice B: Two sides display "5" and four sides display "3"

In StatCrunch, create a probability model for the total sum you get when you roll the two dice. Then use StatCrunch to find the mean and standard deviation of your model. Take a screen shot that displays BOTH items and submit it.

Answer #1

**Answer:**

Given that a game is played with two strange dice.

**Dice A:**

Five sides display "4" and one side displays "1"

X | 1 | 4 |

Probabality | 1/6 | 5/6 |

Mean

**Dice B:**

Two sides display "5" and four sides display "3".

X | 5 | 3 |

Probablity | 2/6 | 4/6 |

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?

The following game is played in a casino. The participant would
roll two fair dice and if they sum to 8 or higher, the participant
wins 4$ otherwise they lose 3$. What is the expected payout the
casino will make as each game is played?

1. Answer the following questions on probability
distributions:
a) A game is played by rolling two dice. If the sum of the dice
is either 2 or 11 then you win $2. If the sum is a 5, then you win
$1. All other sums you win zero. If the cost of the game is 75
cents, is the game fair?
b)A game consists of rolling a pair of dice 10 times. For each
sum that equals either three, four,...

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...

Ahmed plays a game where he tosses two balanced 4
sided-dice, each with faces labeled by 1, 2, 3 and 4. He wins 2
points if the sum is 4. He wins 1 point if the sum is greater than
4. He loses k points if the sum is less than 4.
i. Find the probability distribution sum.
ii. Find the value of k which achieves the fairness of
game. (i.e. The fairness is achieved if the game is not...

Players A and B take turns at rolling two dice, starting with A.
The first person to get a sum of at least 9 on a roll of the two
dice wins the game.
Find the probability that A will win the game if:
(a) the game is just about to begin
(b) 8, 4, 3, 7 and 7 have already been rolled
(c) a draw is to be declared in the event of no-one winning
within 6 rolls.

Players A and B take turns at rolling two dice, starting with A.

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....

Suppose you have two regular dice (6 sides). Find the
probabilities of the following events occurring.
a) The probability you roll a 5 on dice 1 and a 6 on dice 2
b) The probability you roll greater than a 4 on dice 1, and less
than a 4 on dice 2?
c) The probability you roll snake eyes (1 on both dice)

Consider the following game. You roll two fair dice. If you roll
a sum of 8, you win $9. Otherwise, you lose $1. Find the expected

A) $0.39
B) $1.25
C) $0.09
D) $0.00
E) -$0.50
