    The expectation is probably a $1 bill because there is more of them. There is a total of (9 + 8 + 2 + 4) = 23 bills. The chance of getting a $1 is 9/23, the chance of getting a $5 bill is 8/23, the chance of getting a $10 is 2/23, and the chance of getting a $20 is 4/23.

    The expectation (or expected value) is the sum of the probabilities multiplied by the payoffs. So \[\frac{9}{23} * $1 + \frac{8}{23}*$5 + ...\]
