Discrete Mathematics With ApplicationsA gambler repeatedly bets that a die will come up 6 when rolled. Each time the die comes up 6, the gambler wins $1; each time it does not, the gambler loses $1. He will quit playing either when he is ruined or when he wins $300. If P n is the probability that the gambler is ruined when he begins play with S n , then P k − 1 = 1 6 P k + 5 6 P k − 2 for every integer k with 2 ≤ k ≤ 300. Also P 0 = 1 and P 300 = 0.
