Monty Hall Problem The
Monty Hall problem is a probability puzzle based on an American
television game show. The host of the show was Monty Hall.
Contestants were faced with choosing to open one of three doors.
Behind one of the doors was a car, behind each of the other two
was a goat.
The contestant chose a door and then Monty Hall, who knew what was
behind each door, opened one of the other two doors to reveal a
goat. The contestant then had to decide whether to stick with his
or her first choice or switch to the other closed door.
Is it better to switch or stick? Or doesn't it matter? What are
the chances of winning the car? The problem created a great deal
of argument and discussion.
useful for timing tests and other timed activities.
