# HSS-MD.B.5

Weigh the possible outcomes of a decision by assigning probabilities to payoff values and finding expected values.

**a**
Find the expected payoff for a game of chance. For example, find the expected winnings from a state lottery ticket or a game at a fast-food restaurant.

**b**
Evaluate and compare strategies on the basis of expected values. For example, compare a high-deductible versus a low-deductible automobile insurance policy using various, but reasonable, chances of having a minor or a major accident.
