Die A has four 9's and two 0's on its faces. Die B has four 3's and two 11's on its faces. when either of these dice is rolled, each face has an equal chance of landng on top. two players are going to play a game. the first player selects a die and rolls it. the second player rolls the remaining die. the winner is the player whose die has the higher number on top.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

A) suppose you are the first player and you want to win the game. which die would you select and why

B) Suppose the player using die A receives 45 tokens each time he or she wins the game. how many tokens must the player using die B receive each time he or she wins in order for this to be a fair game?

i really dont know how to start this. for a, i would think that, logically, die B would be better to choose but i dont know how to prove that statistically (even if it's right in the first place)

any help is appreciated. thanks in advance
