Here's the assignment: " In a dice-game for two players, two dice (A & B) are used. Each player gets to choose a die. The one who throws the highest number wins".
(Die A has six sides; two of them have two dots and four are five dots. Die B has six sides; four of them have two dots, two of them have six dots).
a) Which of the dice has the largest probability to win? Explain why.
b) Give suggestions on how you can change the worse die in order for it to have a larger probability than the other die.
c) Give a suggestion on how you can double the probability of winning on the dice. "
a) Die A: It's hard because you have a 2/3 chance of getting 5, which is a large number, but also 1/3 of getting a one, that's bad. Die B: You have a 2/3 chance of getting two, which beats the sides with one dot on dice A, and 1/3 chance of getting six dot sides, which instantly makes you win.
I really don't know how to choose one die ?, Die B seems good though.
