  1. P(x) of 1000000 is 1/1000000
    P(x) of 50000 prize is 2/1000000
    P(x) of 1000 prize ia 10/1000000
    P(x) of 50 prize is 200/1000000

    P(x)=p

    Find E(x) for each one

    E(x)= n.p

    Then add all E(x) values to find the expected value of all prizes for one ticket

    Finally, that that total and multiply it by the cost of the ticket which is 2 dollars.

    This will give you the expected profit
