Ans: Casino should charge $7 in order to not loose in the long run.

There are a total of 26 possible combinations of two dice output, and each output is equally likely, We should get the average sum possible and charge higher then that.

Average Sum = ((6*6 + 21) + (6*5 + 21) + (6*4 + 21) + (6*3 + 21) + (6*2 + 21) + (6*1 + 21))/36;

here 21 is sum of 1+2+3+4+5+6.

= (6*21 + 6*21)/36 = 7

7 is the right answer… Coz a person can get a money from 2 to 12, and avg of this two number is 7 by which they will not be in loss (apply probability).
