a)Suppose we have a bag with 8 slips of paper in it. Six of these have a 1 on them and the other two have a 3 on them.
How many 3's do we have to add to make the expected value equal to 2?
Suppose I have a bag with 8 slips of paper in it. Six of these have a 1 on them and the other two have a 3 on them.
How many 3's do I have to add before the expected value is at least 2.5?
