Little Johnny is walking home. He has $300 he has to bring home to his mom. While he is walking a man stops him and gives him a chance to double his money. The man says "I'll give you $600 if you can roll 1 die and get a 4 or above, you can roll 2 dice and get a 5 or 6 on at least one of them, or you can roll 3 dice and get a 6 on at least on die. If you don't I get your $300."
What does Johnny do to have the best chance of getting home with the money?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1It'd be best he doesn't take the bet, because if he does (with one dice) he has a 50 50 (50%) chance of winning. With two dice he won't have much of a bigger chance of winning either, and with THREE dice he'll have a LOWER chance of winning.
