    That would be 6 times the $1.40 which is $8.40 So he contributed $8.40?

    I don't understand. Expected earnings is the 2000 times the probability that he'll win which is 6 out of 2852. That comes out to a dollar and 40 cents. How do I found out what he contributed to the place?

    his expected value is 8.40 he actually paid 30.00 so his EV is less than what he contributed

    I don't understand how his expected earnings come to 8.40. The problem says that you find it by multiplying the chance that he'll win (6/2852) by the value of the cruise ($2000). The answer for that is $4.21(made a mistake). How do I use that to find out how much he contributed?
