Question

Consider a game that costs $1 to play. The probability of losing is 0.7. The probability of winning $50 is 0.1, and the probability of winning $35 is 0.2. Would you expect to win or lose if you play this game 1 time?

Answer #1

thank you

A dodgeball team either wins, ties, or loses each game. If they
lose a game, their probability of winning the next game is 1 and
their probability of losing the next game is 0. If they tie a game,
their probability of winning the next game is 0.8 and their
probability of losing the next game is 0.1. If they win a game,
their probability of winning the next game is 0 and their
probability of losing the next game...

A team play a series of games with win, lose, or draw outcomes.
The transition probabilities between winning, losing, and drawing
are averaged over a long time and treated as independent: Loss Draw
Win Loss 0.3 0.4 0.3 Draw 0.4 0.5 0.1 Win 0.2 0.4 0.4 A. If the
team wins two games in a row, what is the probability that it will
draw its next game? B. On average the team wins 50% of the time,
draws 20% of...

A gambler begins with $500, each game, he may win $100 with a
probability 0.7 or lose $ 100 with probability 0.3. He will play
until he either doubles his money or loses it all. Use simulation
to determine how long he can expect to play the game, and estimate
the probability that he doubles his money.

Suppose you play a game with a friend and the probability of
losing is 6/11 The odds against losing would be

Suppose you play a series of 100 independent games. If you win a
game, you win 4 dollars. If you lose a game, you lose 4 dollars.
The chances of winning each game is 1/2. Use the central limit
theorem to estimate the chances that you will win more than 50
dollars.

Consider this simple game. Pick a card from a regular deck with
52 cards. If you get a heart, you will win $2, otherwise, you will
lose $1.
a) Play this game for one time, what is the probability that you
can win.
b)Play this game twice, what is the probability that you can
win.
c) Play this game 100 times. Find the probability that you can
win.

You are trying to decide whether to play a carnival game that
costs $1.50 to play. The game consists of rolling 3 fair dice. If
the number 1 comes up at all, you get your money back, and get $1
for each time it comes up. So for example if it came up twice, your
profit would be $2. The table below gives the probability of each
value for the random variable X, where:
X = profit from playing the...

A game costs $3.00 to play. A player can win $1.00, $5.00,
$10.00, or nothing at all. The probability of winning $1.00 is 40%,
$5.00 is 20%, and $10.00 is 5%.
a) What is the probability of winning nothing at all?
b) Calculate the expected value for this game.
c) Explain whether this game is fair.

You win a game with probability 0.511. Each game you play is
independent. If you play the game 10 times, What is the probability
that you win 6 of the 10 times.

You win a game with probability 0.569. Each game you play is
independent. If you play the game 10 times, What is the probability
that you win at 8 or more times
