In a particular carnival game you pay $10 to play and select two
cards. If both cards are face
cards you win $200. If the probability of selecting two face cards
is .0498 what is
the expected value of the game to the player?
If the game is played 1000 times how much would you expect to
win/lose?

There is a game at the local carnival where you pay $1 for a
chance to draw one card from a standard deck. If you draw an ace,
you win $3.50 and if you draw a face card, you win $2. Otherwise
you don’t win anything. Find the expected value to you for this
game. Explain why it is or is not a good idea to play this
game.

I propose to you a game. You roll 2 dice. If the sum of the
numbers showing is either 6, or 7, or 8, I win. If it is 2, 3, 4,
5, 9, 10, 11, 12, you win. Since you have lots more possible
winning combinations than I do, the rules are that you pay me $2.00
when I win and I pay you $1.00 when you win. If we play this game
30 times, how much do you...

The game requires $5 to play, once the player is admitted, he

wins they may roll a dice for a second turn, if the die rolls on a
even number, they may pick from the bag once again with no extra...

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
dice game is played as follows: you pay one dollar to play, then
you roll a fair six-sided die. If you roll a six, you win three
dollars. Someone claims to have won a thousand dollars playing this
game nine thousand times. How unlikely is this? Find an upper bound
for the probability that a person playing this game will win at
least a thousand dollars.
