**Here’s the solution to yesterday’s question.**

See Jeopardy Math: What’s the most money that a contestant can win on one show?

============

OK, let’s get started with the **Jeopardy round’s gameboard**:

For starters, assume that our contestant first-buzzes and correctly answers __all__ of the gameboard’s questions.

Each category has questions totaling $3,000 … and there are 6 categories … so the gameboard has an “displayed total value” of $18,000.

That’s not the most that a contestant can win in that round because it doesn’t consider the impact of the hidden Daily Double square.
