# Discuss the advantages of understanding probabilities when playing dice games.

For this Critical Thinking assignment, you will apply concepts from probability theory to real-world scenarios. Chicago is a group dice game that requires no skill. The objective of the game is to accumulate points by rolling certain combinations (GamezBuff, 2017).

How do you play Chicago?

There are eleven rounds in the game, one for each combination that can be made by adding two dice, namely the numbers two through 12. Each round has a target combination starting with two and going up all the way to 12. Going clockwise, the players take turns to roll both dice one time.

If players roll the target combination, then they score points equal to the target combination, otherwise they score zero. For example, if the round corresponds to target combination six, then the player scores six points if the two dice add up to six. Else, the player scores no points.

The player with the highest score at the end of the eleventh round wins the game. Part I: Complete the following steps assuming the target combination is five:

What is the probability that the player rolls the target combination?

What is the probability that the player rolls the target combination given that he/she rolled a one? What is the probability that the player does not roll the target combination given that he/she rolled a one? If the player wins a dollar for every point, he/she gets and losses three dollars for getting no points, what are the expected winnings or losses on each turn? Part II: Based on your work in Part I, discuss the following
