# Expected money calculate for expected round won

If expectancy of winning N consecutive times is X. And payout for each round won is $5. Then how to calculate expected payout for winning N consecutive time. - This doesn't make much sense to me. What do you mean by "Expectancy of winning$N$consecutive times?$ Do you mean the probability of winning $N$ consecutive times? –  Brett Frankel Apr 29 '12 at 3:03

Maybe I'm missing something, but if the payout for each round won is $\$5$, shouldn't the payout for$N$wins in a row be$\$5N$?
