the probability that you decide to buy a ticket and it loses is \(\frac{1-p}{2}\) viewing this as bernoulli trials (independent repeated experiments with only two outcome) the the formula is \[P(x=k)=\dbinom{n}{k}p^k(1-p)^{n-k}\] but in this case \[p=\frac{1-p}{2}\] and therefore \[1-p=1-\frac{1-p}{2}=\frac{1+p}{2}\]

i guess what i wrote is silly, i should have made the first \(p\) a \(p^*\) or some other variable
