<div>To make it more clear if I bet $50 and lose i am negative $50. So the next game I Bet $100. I lose, so I bet $200. I lose the $200, and I am now negative $350. If I win the next bet of $400 I have made $50 profit.</div>
<div>If you can double your bet for an unlimited amount of times until you win, you will always make a profit of the amount of your very first bet.</div>
<div>Are there any fallacies in this logic, assuming there is no house cut to take away from the winning pot?</div>Tue, 17 Jul 2018 20:36:59 -05002018-07-17T20:36:59-05:00698243https://www.wyzant.com/resources/answers/501261/the_kite_runner_quotesAngela from Campbell, CAhttps://www.wyzant.com/resources/answers/users/view/87512006English HelpThe Kite RunnerEnglish Literaturethe kite runner quotes<div>Im looking for quotes in the kite runner in the even chapters, that are very good for analysis </div>Tue, 17 Jul 2018 19:22:30 -05002018-07-17T19:22:30-05:00698277https://www.wyzant.com/resources/answers/501299/my_boyfriend_lied_to_meEm from Bethesda, MDhttps://www.wyzant.com/resources/answers/users/view/87512252My boyfriend lied to me?<div>Me and my boyfriend call everyday at night and he leaves at 12:30 almost every time. I always told him if he did anything while he left? He said he just slept. I asked him to promise and he always promised to he went to sleep. We’re really big on promises. When we promise we better mean it. But tonight it’s 1:27 and I see him playing fortnite with his friends. The settings is on away, which means they can’t see which who you’re playing, and if you’re playing. It didn’t used to be away. He basically has been lying to me. And I took the promise seriously. He’d get really mad everytime I asked him to promise. He’d never talk to me past 1. Because of “needing his sleep” purposes. I don’t understand. Why has he been lying to me? As long as if he’s not cheating why would he keep that from me?</div>Wed, 18 Jul 2018 01:05:57 -05002018-07-18T01:05:57-05:00698281https://www.wyzant.com/resources/answers/501303/question_algebraAdell from New York, NYhttps://www.wyzant.com/resources/answers/users/view/87512061Algebraquestion/algebra<div>Find constants A,B and C such that</div>
