**MathMate**, Sunday, February 27, 2011 at 9:39amThe four possible outcomes are:

outcome payment

H/H +3.00

H/T -2.00

T/H -2.00

T/T -1.00

Average -2.00/4 = -0.50

Decide for yourself.

in the last part of the list T/T you have a -1.00 but shouldnt it be +1.00? does that then change the final answer?

thank you!!

**MathMate**, Sunday, February 27, 2011 at 10:29amDefinitely!

Sorry that I misread the payment scheme.

So it is now:

outcome payment

H/H +3.00

H/T -2.00

T/H -2.00

T/T +1.00

Average 0.00/4 = 0.0

I suppose the result is now evident.
