Question 1

Bob is a famous guitarist and was to perform at the Royal Chesther Hall. As he was leaving for the concert, his van broke down. Knowing very well that his neighbor Derek was also going for the concert, he asked Derek for a lift. Derek who was drunk at that time agreed to give Bob a lift. As Bob was in a hurry, he hopped into Derek’s car knowing that Derek was drunk. On their way to the concert, Derek drove recklessly and crashed into a lorry that was parked by the side of the road. As a result, both Bob and Derek suffered serious injuries. Bob’s electric guitar that was worth RM15,000.00 was destroyed. Bob was hospitalized for a month, as a result of which he was unable to perform at three concerts for which his fee would have been RM20,000.00 for each performance. Advise Bob.

Question 2
At a raffle, 1000 tickets are sold for \$5 each. There are 20 prizes of \$25, 5 prizes of \$100, and 1 grand prize of \$2000. Suppose you buy one ticket.
Let the random variable X represent your net gain (remember that the net gain should include the cost of the ticket) after playing the game once.
1. Use the table below to help you construct a probability distribution for all of the possible values of X and their probabilities.
2. Find the mean (expected value) of your net gain X, and interpret what  this value means in the context of the game.
3. If you play in such a raffle 100 times, what is the expected value of your
