Karl and Naomi roll three dice. Karl gives $10 to Naomi if the number 5 turns up once, twice or three times. Naomi gives Karl $3 in all other cases. B) Does Karl have an advantage in this game? Justify your answer. Thank you very much for your time and patients. Secondary(11) Student Hi, I also would draw a probability tree to analyze this problem. On the first roll of the die you could construct 6 branches for the tree, one for each of the 6 possible outcomes. But you only want to know if the result is a 5 or not, so you can construct the tree starting with 2 branches, one for the result of rolling a 5 and the other for the result of not rolling a 5. The same is true for each of the 3 rolls. At each step you only need 2 branches.
On each roll the probability of rolling a 5 is ^{1}/_{6} and the probability of not rolling a 5 is ^{5}/_{6}. I started the tree below. Penny
