Peter is playing a game where a ten-sided die is rolled. Four sides of the die have the number 10, three sides of the die have the number 5, two sides of the die have the number 25, and one side of the die has the number 27.

What is the expected value of a roll?

asked by kj
  1. 4/10 chance of rolling 10
    3/10 chance of rolling 5
    2/10 chance of rolling 25
    1/10 chance of rolling 27

    Expected value is the sum of the outcomes multiplied by probabilities

    = (4/10)(10) + (3/10)(5) + (2/10)(25) + (1/10)(27)
