Q: A construct a probability distribution for this situation.
A: ????
Q: Find the expected value Mr F says: The expected value of the amount of money pulled from the bag, I assume ....?
A: I think, (1x10)+(2x5)+(5x4)+(10x1)+(20x1)+(100x1) = $7.27 Mr F says: How did you get $7.27!? The left hand side adds up to 170 ....!
The answer (use the probability distribution - see how to get it below) is found using the definition: 170/22 = $7.73.
Q:Is this game fair? if it is not fair, determine how much someone should have to pay in order for the game to be fair.
A: Well it should cost $7.27 for the game to be considered fair.
I dont know what to do on the first one, nor if i have done the 2nd one right, which therefore would make me do the last one wrong.
