Part 1What is the expected value of a single lottery ticket?______ dollars (Round to the nearest cent as needed.)Part 2If you spend $365 per year on the lottery, how much can you expect to win? ______ dollars (Round to the nearest cent as needed.)17. In the game of roulette, when a player gives the casino $13 for a bet on the number 18, the player has a 37/38 probability of losing $13 and a 1/38 probability of making a net gain of $455. (The prize is $468, but the player’s$13 bet is not returned, so the net gain is $455.) If a player bets $13 that the outcome is an odd number, the probability of losing $13 is 20/38 and the probability of making a net gain of $13 is 18/38. (If a player bets $13 on an odd number and wins, the player is given $26 that includes the bet, so the net gain is $13.) Complete parts(a) through(c) below a. If a player bets $ 13 on the number 18, what is the player’s expected value? The expected value is_____ dollars. (Round to the nearest cent as needed.)b. If a player bets 3$that the outcome is an odd number, what is the player’s expected value? The expected value is negative _____ dollars.(Round to the nearest cent as needed.)

c. Is the best option to bet on 25, to bet on odd, or not to bet? Why? A. Betting on 25 is best because it has the highest potential net gain. B. Not betting is best because it has the highest expected value. C. Betting on odd is best because it has the highest expected value. D. Betting on odd and not betting are equally good because their expected values are higher than the expected value of betting on. 18.

a. What is the probability of the event that the first four selections are all jazz? The probability is______. (Round to four decimal places as needed.)

b. What is the probability of the event that the first five selections are all blues? The probability is_______. (Round to five decimal places as needed.)

c. What is the probability of the event that the first selection is jazz and the second is rock? The probability is _______. (Round to three decimal places as needed.)

d. What is the probability of the event that among the first four selections, none is rock? The probability is ______. (Round to four decimal places as needed.)

e. What is the probability of the event that the second selection is the same song as the first? The probability is ________. (Round to four decimal places as needed.)
