What is the expected value of one 700 tickets in a raffle for a prize of $1400?

    Expected value is obtained by summing the product of the prizes by the individual probabilities.

    In this case, there is only one prize of $1400, of which the probability of getting it is 1/700. So the expected value is $1400*(1/700)=$2.
