Question description


:The 8th grade class of City Middle School has decided to hold a raffle to raise money to fund a trophy cabinet as their legacy to the school. A local business leader with a condominium on St. Simon’s Island has donated a week’s vacation at his condominium to the winner—a prize worth $1200. The students plan to sell 2500 tickets for $1 each.

Have your chances of holding a winning ticket changed? Explain your reasoning. Suppose that the same raffle is held every year. What would your average net winnings be, assuming that you and your 4 friends buy 5 $1 tickets each year?
