There is a \$2 raffle with a first prize of \$10000, a second prize of \$500, and a 3rd prize of \$100. If 1000 tickets are sold find the expected value. How much should the raffle ticket cost to make this a fair game?

A fair game would be when the price of all the tickets sold is equal to the total prize money. That is \$10600.

So the price of one ticket would need to be just one-thousandth of that.
