Three Curtains
« on: October 04, 2013, 01:52:29 PM »
You are a contestant on a game show. There are three curtains. Behind one of the curtains is a new car. You are asked to choose one of the curtains. Lets say that you choose curtain #1. The host of the show - who knows where the  car is so as not to end the game prematurely - opens curtain #3 and there is no car behind it. The host now gives you a choice. You can stay with curtain #1 or you can change your choice to curtain #2. The question now is: would it be to your advantage to stay with curtain #1, or would it be to your advantage to change to curtain #2 or would there be no advantage either way?

Is this a trick question? If the car is behind curtain #1, then it is advantageous to pick curtain #1.
"So then, stand firm and hold to the traditions :o which you were taught by us, either by word of mouth or by letter" (2 Thessalonians 2:15).

No, it's a logic question.

How do you know it is behind curtain #1?

RukTerTalodKan,

I don't understand what that means.  I wonder if you might elaborate?

Curtains are inexpensive. Can anyone recommend? We want to buy a new replacement.

That would be an issue for a different topic.   Maybe you could start one?
