Question: Suppose that a certain casino has the money wheel game

Suppose that a certain casino has the “money wheel” game. The money wheel is divided into 50 sections, and the wheel has an equal probability of stopping on each of the 50 sections when it is spun. Twenty-two of the sections on this wheel show a $1 bill, 14 shows a $2 bill, 7 show a $5 bill, 3 show a $10 bill, 2 show a $20 bill, 1 show a flag, and 1 show a joker. A gambler may place a bet on any of the seven possible outcomes. If the wheel stops on the outcome that the gambler bet on, he or she wins. The net payoffs for these outcomes for $1 bets are as follows.

b. Calculate the expected net payoffs for each of the other six outcomes.
