Question

Roulette is a game of chance that involves spinning a wheel that is divided into 38 equal segments, as shown in the accompanying picture.

An image of a roulette wheel is shown. Text to the side of the image reads "©Anna Baburkina/Shutterstock.com."

A metal ball is tossed into the wheel as it is spinning, and the ball eventually lands in one of the 38 segments. Each segment has an associated color. Two segments are green. Half of the other 36 segments are red and the others are black. When a balanced roulette wheel is spun, the ball is equally likely to land in any one of the 38 segments.

PART A)When a balanced roulette wheel is spun, what is the probability that the ball lands in a green segment? (Round your answer to three decimal places.)

PART C) Suppose that you watch 1000 spins of a roulette wheel and note the color that results from each spin. What would be an indication that the wheel was not balanced? (Select all that apply.)

If the number of spins that landed on green was much less than the answer from part (a) times 1000.

need help with part C please

If the number of spins that landed on green was much greater than the answer from part (a) times 1000.

If the number of spins that landed on green was approximately equal to the answer from part (a) times 1000.

Answer #1

A balanced roulette wheel 2 segments green, 18 red and 18 black.

A)The probability that the ball lands in a green segment is .

C) In 1000 spins of a fair roulette wheel , we shoud get approximately,

green, red and black each. If the roulette wheel is not balanced, the results will deviate from these values significantly.

The correct choices are the first 2 choices.

**If the number of spins that landed on green was much
less than the answer from part (a) times 1000.**

**If the number of spins that landed on green was much
greater than the answer from part (a) times 1000.**

Roulette Wheel: The game of roulette involves
spinning a wheel with 38 slots: 18 red, 18 black, and 2 green. A
ball is spun onto the wheel and will eventually land in a slot,
where each slot has an equal chance of capturing the ball.
a) You watch a roulette wheel spin 6 consecutive times and the ball
lands on a red slot each time. What is the probability that the
ball will land on a red slot on the next...

The game of roulette involves spinning a wheel with 38 slots: 18
red, 18 black, and 2 green. A ball is spun onto the wheel and will
eventually land in a slot, where each slot has an equal chance of
capturing the ball. One popular bet is that it will stop on a red
slot; such a bet has an 18/38 chance of winning. Suppose a gambler
bets on red in 6 different spins.
a) Find the probability the gambler...

A roulette wheel has 38 slots, numbered 1 to 36, with two
additional green slots labeled 0 and 00. Jim, a dealer at a
roulette table, tests the roulette wheel by spinning a ball around
the wheel repeatedly and seeing where the ball lands. The ball has
an equally likely chance of landing in each slot. If Jim spins the
ball around the wheel 20 times, what is the probability that the
ball lands in a green slot at most...

A roulette wheel has 38 slots in which the ball can land. Two of
the slots are green, 18 are red and 18 are black. The ball is
equally likely to land in any slot. The roulette wheel is going to
be spun twice and the outcomes of the two spins are
independent.
The probability that it never lands on green is
0.9474.

Roulette Wheel
A roulette wheel contains 38 colored pockets. Two of the pockets
are colored green, 18 are colored red, and 18 are colored black. A
small ball spins around the inside of the wheel and eventually
falls and lands into one of the colored pockets. Each pocket has
equal probability, and gamblers decides to place four bets at the
roulette wheel, with all four bets on red. Let x be the number of
times the participant bets correctly. What...

In the the casino game of roulette, players make bets based on a
wheel with 38 numbered pockets (18 red pockets, 18 black pockets,
and two green pockets, labeled 0 and 00). The wheel is then spun
one direction and the ball is spun in the opposite direction.
Eventually, the ball will land in one of the numbered pockets. The
wheel is designed so that the ball has an equal chance of landing
in any one of the pockets.
Suppose...

An American roulette wheel contains 38 numbers: 18 are red, 18
are black, and 2 are green. When the roulette wheel is spun, the
ball is equally likely to land on any of the 38 numbers. Suppose
that you bet $1 on red. If the ball lands on a red number, you win
$1; otherwise you lose your $1. Let X be the amount you
win on your $1 bet.
Determine the probability distribution of the random variable
X .

8. (3 pts) In the game of roulette, a wheel consists of 38
slots, numbered 0, 00, 1, 2, … , 36. To play the game, a metal ball
is spun around the wheel and is allowed to fall into one of the
numbered slots. The slots numbered 0 and 00 are green, the odd
numbers are red and the even numbers are black. Determine the
probability that the metal ball falls into a red slot or a slot
with...

A roulette wheel has 2 green spaces, 18 red, and 18 black
spaces. If the wheel is spun 5 times, and if the outcomes of
individual spins are all independent,
If we define the random variable x to be the number times that
red shows up from any 5 spins, what can we know about X
