Probability
Assigning a wonky die (
Posted on 20060428
)
I have an unfair die whose sides are known to have the following probabilities:{.02,.04,.08,.12,.24,.5}
Assign the numbers {1,2,3,4,5,6} to these sides so the expected roll is the same as for a fair die.
Can you solve this without brute force?
