I think that is what we got for your problem. We did a different problem from what you expected.

My GF for that was:

### Re: So this is what was happening

So I can sum the probability of getting a result multiplied by that result. That gives me what the result will be on average when I put x=1.

### Re: So this is what was happening

Hi Agnishom

I put x=1 becauase it gets me the desired answer.

Gf means generating function.
