In the television game show Deal or No Deal, contestant Elna Hindler had to choose between acceptance of an offer of $193,000 or continuing the game. If she continued to refuse all further offers, she would have won one of these five equally likely prizes: $75, $300, $75,000, $500,000, and $1,000,000.
