I’m talking about the game show with Jimmy Kimmel, where contestants choose between 14 numbers. 10 are white (good) and 4 are red (bad).
Suppose a rich philanthropist plays this game with every Iraqi wage earner, what is the expected prize payout?
Additional questions: Does the payout change much if a limit is put in place on the monthly check so it caps at twice the average income? (to prevent over-benefitting the already rich) Do the numbers change drastically between pre-war economy and today?
I started calculating the expected value of the game and researching the Iraqi economy, but haven’t gotten very far.
