    Default Math question

    The student council runs a coin toss game during a fundraiser.

    It costs $1.00 to play.

    Each player tosses two coins and wins a prize if the coins match.

    Each prize is $4.00.

    After a few minutes the council realizes their mistake.

    a)Why will the student council not make any money? Explain.


    b)What could they change about the game to make more money?


    being honest... this is my homework and I don't understand.

    This is a question on probability.
    So to participate its 1 dollar
    To land on head would be 50% chance.
    And for the other to land on 1 side the sade would be 25% (Half of 50)
    thats what they thought,but in reality, for two coins to land there is only 3 possibility either heads heads, tail tail, or heads tail. so the chances of winning is 2 out of 3. so they lose money.
    Change? prize to 2 dollars for getting different coin landings
