comment Probability that a sum of potential numbers is greater than some value
I absolutely agree with you. I was at work and did not have enough time to really focus on this problem. The solution to this question is useful for marketeers,especially, once automated.

Awesome. You using R? I use R a lot as well. Thanks man. I will right an algorithm in R and Python and probably make a blog post about it. I will cite your answer.

You are the man. Thank you a lot. Exactly, I am looking for the probability of their sum exceeding a value.

Yeah they are fixed. Any idea how the algorithm would look like. The maximum amount of money I can receive is 204$(just the sum). With the listed probabilities it is 94.8(expected value). In the worst case I dont receive anything, so I get 0. So, if I win some cash prizes (I dont know which) I want to know the probability of their sum being greater than some k.

@mike1886 Right! Thats why I asked it here. This is not an isolated problem. This is a real world problem. The probabilities are my opinion of receiving each cash prize. For example, I bought five lottery tickets. The probabilities are my opinion of winning each cash prize.
