Suppose someone oFers you a choice between (a) $150 if a single roll of a die turned up “6”; or (b) a de±nite prize of $20. Which would you choose, and why? What if the choice was between (c) $150 for each “6” that turns up in 30 rolls; or (d) a de±nite prize of $600? I.2. Permutations . Consider 100 distinct names written on cards in a hat. Suppose the cards are mixed thoroughly, and then pulled out one at a time to form a list. What is the probability that the names on that list will be in alphabetical order? How many times would I have to repeat this procedure for there to be a greater than 50% chance of the alphabetic list turning up at least once? I.3. Permutations . Proteins are chain molecules (polymers) made up of amino acids. There are twenty common amino acids. Let’s consider fairly short proteins, containing 153 amino
