ok there are two different ways to roll an 11, \((6,5)\) and \((5,6)\) out of the 36 possible rolls probability it \(\frac{2}{36}=\frac{1}{18}\)

17 out of 18 times you lose $1 so you better win $17 when you do roll an 11

  • anonymous
you can think of it this way roll 18 times, you lost 17 times and win once so you lose $17 and therefore you have to win $17 to break even
