Frank is faced with a decision about whether to take a bet with a friend or get $20 for sure. If he wins the bet, he gets $50, if he loses the bet, he has to pay $50. For Frank, the utility of $50 is 10 and the utility of paying $50 is 0. The utility of the $20 sure thing is:

U($20) = p*U($50) + (1-p)*U(-$50)

What is the expected value of the bet?
