Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0there is something wrong with this question this is the solution i got...E = 40(12/52)+50(3/52)+90(1/52) = 13.8. This means Sarah expects to win 13.8 cents. However, she pays 15 cents to play the game. Therefore, she actually loses money: 13.815 = 1.2 cents.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0okay I understand it now just talked to someone in class about it...because there's the option for the ace of hearts you have to take that out of the other options,....you cant win both cash prices at once
