selected. If the doors can be selected with equal probability, what is the expected value of the selection if the three doors have behind them a $40,000 foreign car, a $3 silly straw, and a $50 mathematics textbook?

**Reiny**, Wednesday, August 12, 2009 at 9:18amexpected value of car = (1/3)(40000) = 13333.33

expected value of silly draw = (1/3)(3) = 1.00

expected value of mathbook = (1/3)(50) = 16.67

so the expected value of event is the sum of these or $13531.00
