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.

 

a) What is the expected value of the number shown when we draw a single slip of paper?

 

b) What is the expected value of the number shown if we add one additional  to the bag?

 

c) What is the expected value of the number shown if we add two additional 's (instead of just one) to the bag?

Forgot the numbers sorry

a) 3 because the possibility to draw a 3 is 80% and 80%>20%

b) Hint: Find the possibilities by first finding the fraction then convert to a percent to compare.(same thingcfor (c))

expected value is a predicted value of a variable, calculated as the sum of all possible values each multiplied by the probability of its occurrence.

I tried answering the question before I went here and put in 3 and it was wrong.
