Question 340100
<font face="Garamond" size="+2">

There is 1 King of Hearts in 52 card deck.  Hence the probability of drawing the King of Hearts is *[tex \Large \frac{1}{52}] and therefore the expected return with respect to drawing a King of Hearts is *[tex \Large \frac{1}{52}\ \times\ $104\ =$2]

There are 4 Aces, so: *[tex \Large \frac{4}{52}\ \times\ $78\ =$6]

There are 47 other cards, so *[tex \Large \frac{47}{52}\ \times\ -$13\ = -$11.75]

*[tex \LARGE \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ 2\ +\ 6\ -\ 11.75\ =\ -3.75]

On average, you give up \$3.75 every time you play.
