Suppose there are four players in the game and each will choose one die and roll it. The person
who rolls the smallest number will be eliminated. For each die, calculate the probability that
the smallest number observed occurs on that die. Now which die would you choose (assuming
you want to stay in the game rather than reading a good book, having root canal work, etc.)?
