Homework Help: statistics

Posted by Anonymous on Sunday, October 17, 2010 at 5:32pm.

The game of roulette uses a wheel containing 38 pockets. Thirty-six pockets are numbered 1, 2, 3, ..., 35, 36, and the remaining two are marked 0 and 00. The wheel is spun, and a pocket is identified as the "winner." Assume that the observance of any one pocket is just as likely as any other.
Suppose you bet $5 on a single number -- say, the number 18. The payoff on this type of bet is usually 35 to 1. What is your expected gain?
