What is E(payoff) C)if the lottery tickets cost $1 how much should you expect to loose on the average per play

  • math - ,

    number of possible 2 digit numbers is
    5x4 or 20
    So the prob of a win is 1/20

    E($10) = (1/20)(10) = .50 or 50 cents

    So you would expect to lose 50 cents (or win 50 cents) on each $1 play.
