In the
problem Optimal Card Drawing Strategy, an optimal strategy was determined for a card game.
Give a closed expression for the expected score when using the optimal strategy.
(In reply to
re(2): C = 19, R = 6 by Steve Herman)
I am very close to regaining the equation, with some luck I should be able to finish tonight. I did forget to add another piece of information to the hint. In you inequality
R¡Ý(2HC)(C+1)/((CH+1)(CH)
try this instead, solve for a threshold functions T(R)
which says that when determining if you should take draw #R you should stop when H>=T(R)
in other words, solve
R¡Ü(2HC)(C+1)/((CH+1)(CH))
for H instead. Then reevaluate my previous hint.
