Hello!
So I was working on an imaginary casino model similar to beat the dealer, however I got stuck when trying to determine what would be the most profitable results from the casino's perspective. That's when I asked one of my dad's friends, who is a mathematician, if he could help me. I expected a really simple suggestion but instead, based on my different probabilities, he made a table for me.
Of course I pretended to understand and nodded every time he looked at me as in "Of course! That's obvious!" But the truth is I do not understand a thing so I wanted to as if anyone can understand this?
