**Unformatted text preview: **SQLJYDOMJ ’- EKPHM I): " Gregg") 1. (25 pts.) Red Dog is a card game in which one can place repeated $1 bets. For purposes of this
exam, we need not go into the rules], but the payoff table for a single $1 bet is given below: From this probability mass function for a single $1 bet, it can be shown that the mean and
standard deviation for net winnings are ,u E ~$0.07968

bets. The shape of the histogram below is predicted by a theorem. Name this theorem. CENW own” WWM (on) Net Winnings in 225 Consecutive $1 Bets in “Red Dog" 0.02 Net Winnings 1 If you’re curious about the rules contact your instructor or see, for example, Katz, Nikki (2004), The Everything Card
