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
0's $1.41603 a. The histogram below shows the total net winnings in repeated, simulated sequences of 225 $1
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
Games Book: A Complete Guide to Over 50 Games to Please Any Crowd, Adams Media, Avon, MA, pp. 203205. The
payout table above is correct for a player who doesn’t ever raise his or her bet and when the game is played with 6 decks. m»; m,“ b. Estimate, using the theorem of part a, the chance of having net winnings of $10 or more in 225
consecutive $1 bets in Red Dog. (Note: While the histogram on the previous page may help you
