Example 65


Example 65: What is your expected value on the following game?  You offer your friends $1 if they can roll a one on a die, $3 if they can roll a three and $5 if they can roll a five.  However, they pay the dollar amount equal to what they roll on the die if they roll any even number on the die.  Should your friends play this game against you?
