Suppose that you are offered the following "deal." You roll a six sided die. If you roll a 6, you win \$8. If you roll a 2, 3, 4 or 5, you win \$3. Otherwise, you pay \$8.

a. Complete the PDF Table. List the X values, where X is the profit, from smallest to largest. Round to 4 decimal places where appropriate.

X P(X)

b. Find the expected profit. \$ (Round to the nearest cent)

c. Interpret the expected value.

• If you play many games, on average, you will likely win, or lose if negative, close to this amount.
• You will win this much if you play a game.
• This is the most likely amount of money you will win.

Step 1

a.

The possible outcomes when rolling a die is {1, 2, 3, 4, 5 and 6}.

The formula for finding probability of an event is shown below:
