    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
