Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0There's a total of 23 bills, with the following probabilities of selecting a particular denomination: \[P($1)=\frac{9}{23}\\P($5)=\frac{8}{23}\\ P($10)=\frac{2}{23}\\P($20)=\frac{4}{23}\] If \(X\) denotes the random variable for bill denomination, then \(X\) can take on any value from \(\{1,5,10,20\}\). So, if \(x\) is one of the values of \(X\) and \(f(x)\) is the probability of a particular \(x\), the expected value is \[E(X)=\sum_{\text{all }x}x~f(x)=1\cdot\frac{9}{23}+5\cdot\frac{8}{23}+10\cdot\frac{2}{23}+20\cdot\frac{4}{23}\approx6.48\]
