In the game of roulette, a wheel consists of 38 slots, but only five of them are a multiple of five. The numbers, 5, 25, and 30 are red. While the numbers 15, 20, and 35 are black. There are two green slots with the number 0, 00. Is it statistically unlikely that the metal ball falls into a number that is a multiple of five. Why or why not.
Total number of cases = 38 (total slots)
Favorable number of cases = 5 (multiple of five -5,20 , 25 ,30 ,35)
probability that the metal ball falls into a multiple of five = 5/38 = 0.1316
That is there is 13.16% chance that the metal ball falls into a slot which is multiple of five.
Which is not unlikely
As chance less than 5% is considered unlikely
Thus , it is not unlikely that metal ball falls into a multiple of five slot

In the game of roulette, a wheel consists of 38 slots numbered 0, 00, 1, 2,..., 36. To play the game, a metal ball is spun around the wheel and is allowed to fall into one of the numbered slots. If the number of the slot the ball falls into matches the number you selected, you win $35; otherwise you lose $1. Complete parts (a) through (g) below. Construct a probability distribution for the random variable X, the winnings of...

In the game of roulette, a metal ball is spun around a rotating wheel containing 18 red-numbered slots, 18 black-numbered slots, and 2 green slots numbered 0 and 00, respectively. Find the probability that the ball falls into a red slot exactly 14 times in 20 spins. 0.7000 0.0370 0.4737 0.0236
In the game of roulette, a metal ball is spun around a rotating wheel containing 18 red numbered slots, 18 black numbered slots, and 2 green slots numbered 0 and 00 respectively. Find the probability that the ball falls into a green slot two or more times in 20 spins. a) .4456 b) .3948 c) .2840
A roulette wheel has 38 numbered slots (1 through 36, 0, and 00). Of the 38 compartments, 18 are black, 18 are red and 2 are green. A play has the dealer (called the “croupier”) spin the wheel and a small ball in opposite directions. As the ball comes to a stop, it can land with equal probability on any of the 38 numbered slots. Find the probability of green occurring on two consecutive plays?
A roulette wheel has 38 slots and a ball that rolls until it falls into one of the slots, all of which are equally likely. Eighteen slots are black numbers, eighteen are red numbers, and two are green zeros. If you bet on “red”, and the ball lands in a red slot, the casino pays you your bet, otherwise the casino wins your bet. What is the expected value of a $1 bet on red? Suppose you bet $1 on...
