I have 10 cards face-down numbered 1 through 10. We play a game in which you choose a card and I give you the corresponding dollar amount. a) What is the fair price of this game? b) Now, after picking a card you can either take the dollar value on the card or $3.50. Also, cards worth less than 5 are now valued at $0. What is the maximum price you are now willing to pay for the game?

Fair value is 5.5 2nd game: FV = (3.5 x 5 + 6 + 7 + 8 + 9 + 10)/10 = 4.75

You decide on taking the dollar value on the card or $3.50 *before* seeing the number on the card. And you get $5, if you open that card, not $0. So: 2nd game: (1/2)*3.5 + (1.2)*(1/10*[5+6+7+8+9+10]) = 4

3.5(.4) + (4.5)*.6 = $4.10 3.5 because this is what 40% will select, 4.5 as this is the avg of 5-10*1/10. There is not a 50% chance of selecting 3.5 @Your are WRong @ EASY. There is not a 10% chance of receiving $3.5 as numbers under 5 are worthless this will /should change your perspective.

I don't remember the hardest one, so here is one of the other questions from the perspective of the interviewer. Here is a coin game as follows. We each have three fair coins, and we flip all of them at once. After we flip them, we look at the outcomes. If we have the same number of heads out of our own coins I pay you $1 and if we have a different number you pay me $2. Do you want to play this game?
