i must be getting dumb because i can't understand the question at all lol. 50% chance, yes = +10, no = -1?
.5*10 + .5*-1 = 4.5

thats not a math question, math bases itself on coherency

maybe its a language thing but i dont get it........
if you have a 50% chance of winning and you win 10 but lose 1 its obviously (+10-1)*0.5 (since both happen 0,5 of the time) -> 4.5
How could this even be a question ?
Its 4th grade math
but maybe you mean something else ?
Like if every throw has the same event happening -1 and +10 your EV is obviously 9...... but than the 50% chance information is rubbish since it doesnt apply to an example where the outcame is always the same
U see what i did there with A8 ? He 4 bets and there we go insta jam A8 : ---booooom -- . hahahaha ( Krantz)
