This is a math question that has to do with LoL in a way I'll explain later. I want to see how most LoL players answer this question. Please don't get help before answering the poll and don't explain the correct answer until I've gotten enough results and explain it myself.

Question: You have 100 actions, they can be used for one of two things.

You have to use those 100 actions to receive a score of 40
One action is to flip a two sided coin, and receive one (1) point for heads and zero (0) points for tails. So this on average gives you .5 points, but it's not guaranteed, you might get less.

The other action is to add .35 points to your score. It's a sure thing. But you can't rely on this strategy alone, because then you'll only get 35 points, and you need 40.

For the best chance of achieving your minimum goal of 40, how many times do you use strategy A? Since the question is specific, you should be able to tell it has a definite answer, or two at the most, but since this is a poll there will be ranges. The coin flipping strategy is strategy A.

Also, please vote even if you're unsure, otherwise I have nonresponse bias (i only get answers from the smart people, not a good survey)

EDIT: You have to decide how much of each strategy you'll use before you start flipping coins.

I would ask Twisted Fate to flip the coin because...

Can you flip coins before deciding how many you're going to flip in total? Because then you just keep flipping until you get 40 - 0.35*remaining flips or you go over 40. Otherwise I'll just be happy with having voted 31-40 because 34 is my favorite number.

oh sorry, you don't get to see the flip results during the process. I'll change the OP to make that clear.
