## Homework Statement:

- In a boardgame you move forward the amount of steps that the dice roll. Except if the dice show 1 you move 6 steps. Calculate the Expected Value.

## Relevant Equations:

- E(x) = sum(g(k) * p(k))

I write p(k) as:

$$p(k) = 1/6, k = 2,3,4,5$$

$$p(k) = 2/6, k = 6$$

Is that wrong?

Because then the expected value becomes

$$1/6 * 4 + 2/6 * 6 = 8/3$$

While my book says 11/3

$$p(k) = 1/6, k = 2,3,4,5$$

$$p(k) = 2/6, k = 6$$

Is that wrong?

Because then the expected value becomes

$$1/6 * 4 + 2/6 * 6 = 8/3$$

While my book says 11/3
