Problem 21

Unweighting a die - BONUS

Due: February 23
Points: 2-4

Come up with a better algorithm for Problem 19 than what we saw presented in class. You need to describe our algorithm and analyze the entropy loss (delivarables 2 and 3 in the original problem).

If your entropy loss is less than 60%, you get 2 points (total) for this problem.

Less than 50%, you get 3 points (total) for this problem.

And less than 26%, you get 4 points.
