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.

Is one solution, its reversal is another. I didn't know there were more (see Charlie's solution) because I never checked using brute force.

If 'brute force' means checking every possibiity, this can be solved without by putting the numbers in any order and then switching then by pairs to lead the expected value in the direction of 3.5
