Twenty bills

3/20 ($20)  + 6/20 (10) + 7/20(5) + 4/20(1) = 7.95 expected value

\(\text{There are 20 total bills. Assume we choose any of them with equal probability.}\\ P[20] = \dfrac{3}{20}\\ P[10]= \dfrac{6}{20}=\dfrac{3}{10}\\ P[5] = \dfrac{7}{20}\\ P[1] = \dfrac{4}{20} = \dfrac{1}{5} \\ \text{Let }X \text{ be the value of the bill chosen.}\\ E[X] = 20\cdot \dfrac{3}{20} + 10\cdot \dfrac{3}{10} + 5 \cdot \dfrac{7}{20} + 1\cdot \dfrac{1}{5}\\ E[X] = \dfrac{159}{20} =$ 7.95\)

3/6 are odd for each die

3/6 x 3/6 = 9/36 = 1/4 chance of both being odd
