The player loses her bet if there is no match and wins if there is a match. How much should the winning be for each dollar of bet, so that on the average the player does not lose any money? (b) When the player selects 2 numbers, she gets \$12 for every \$1 she bets if both the numbers are among the 20 chosen by the casino; she loses her bet if only one or none of her numbers matches the house numbers. Is this winning amount fair for the player? That is, if she plays many times will she lose or gain?...

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
