suppose there are 100 guys... and each of them pick any number between 0 and 100 once everybody has picked a number....you add all of the numbers and multiply that by 2/3 so...if everybody picked 100....the average would be 100 and after multiplying by 2/3, you get 66.67... now, whoever's picked number is closest to the average multiplied by 2/3, wins the game and gets $100..... what no I should I choose to maximize my chance of winning?

Just a stab in the dark, but if you multiplied each number by 2/3, and found the average of those. Wouldn't that be the best number to guess?

good! so if 100 guys pick one, then the result would be 2/3!
anonymous
  • anonymous
so if you picked 1, then you would be winning

alright, try having all guys pick different numbers: guy 1 pick 1, guy 2 pick 2... guy 100 pick 100

find\[\sum_{i=1}^{100}i\]

this is \[\frac{100*(100+1)}{2}=10100/2 = 5050\]

If you don't like that answer, set up a simulation. For every trial, make it create a list of 100 random integers. Sum those elements, divide by 100, and multiply that sum by 2./3. Repeat for about 10000-1000000 trials, adding the results of each trial together, and finding the average result.
