In Gambler's Ruin two players engage in a game of chance in which A wins a dollar from B with probability $p$ and $\mathrm{B}$ wins a dollar from $\mathrm{A}$ with probability $q=1-p$. There are $N$ dollars between $\mathrm{A}$ and $\mathrm{B}$ and $\mathrm{A}$ begins the $n$ dollars. They continue to play the game until A or B has won all of the money. What is the probability that $\mathrm{A}$ will end up with all the money assuming that $p>q$. Assume that $p=\frac{20}{38}$ which happens to be the house advantage in roulette. What is the probability that $A$ will win all the money if $n=\$ 100$ and $N=\$ 1,000,000,000 ?$ Assume that $p=\frac{20}{38}$ which happens to be the house advantage in roulette. What is the probability that A will win all the money if $n=\$ 10$ and $N=\$ 100 ?$ Estimate this by Monte-Carlo simulation using the gamblerruin program in your calculator library.Data Sciencehttps://mathsgee.com/27672/what-probability-that-mathrm-will-with-money-assuming-thatSun, 09 May 2021 09:59:57 +0000Using the concepts of momentum, work, and energy, explain how a football player can be more effective with his feet on the ground.
