Let's demonstrate this idea with the dice game Craps.
A player rolls a pair of six-sided dice.
If the initial roll is 2, 3, or 12, the player loses.
If the initial roll is 7 or 11, the player wins.
Any other initial roll causes the player to "roll for point". This means that the player keeps rolling either until she re-rolls the initial value (a win) or rolls a 7 (a loss).
Let's write a program to simulate multiple games of craps and estimate the probability that the player wins.
Input: Number of games to simulate
Output: Probability of winning
[w07-design]$ ls colors.txt fileDemo.py showContents.py [w07-design]$Open fileDemo.py in vim. In a separate window, change to the w07-design directory so you can run the program using python fileDemo.py.
Think about the answers to the following questions. Feel free to modify the program or use the python shell to help you answer these questions.
