In the bet on a “single number” at roulette, there is chance 1/38 of winning. The bet pays 35 to 1; you can take this to mean that if you win the bet, your net gain is $35, and if you lose the bet then you lose$1 (that is, your net gain is -\$1). Suppose you bet repeatedly on a single number; assume that the bets are independent of each other. Find the expected value of your net gain from 38 bets.
