Suppose we have a bag with 10 slips of paper in it. Eight slips have a 3 on them and the other two have a 9 on them.

How many 9's do I have to add before the expected value is at least 8?

Write as equation:

$$3 \times 8 + 9 \times 2 + 9x = 8(10+x)$$

$$42+ 9x=80+8x$$

$$42+x=80$$

$$x =\color{brown}\boxed{ 38}$$
