Use your brain!

Hallo!

I've following task for you.

Imagine you're in a game show (on television). And you're the winner of this show. Now you've the chance to win a car. But there are three doors and there's only one care behind one door. Behind two doors are goats. You've to pick one door (but the door isn't opened). Now the game host opens one of the other two doors to show you a goat (he knows what is behind the doors). Then he asks you if you want to pick the other unopened door before they're opened and you get a car or a goat.

What should you do, how big are your chances to pick the car?

Now use your brain (it isn't always the nearest solution)!

I would switch Wink

I would stick with the door that I chose first. The car must be inside there.

50% car since there are 2 doors, but it will choose the one on the right of the opened door (if it is on the right i choose the middle door)

@ MrBlueSky: Are you guessing or can you give us a reason for your decision?

@ endless: I'm sure, that the chances don't stand 50:50 to get the car Wink

@ ashish2005: Why should the car be inside this door?

they are, since there are 2 doors left, you have 50% change to get the right door, unlewss there are 3 goats :L\

There are 3 doors, 2 goats and 1 one car.
But fore sure, the chance to get the right door is not 50%.

I'll post the correct answer and the way to the correct solution tomorrow.

But try to solve this problem on your own, may you find the correct solution.

However, this is an interesting problem. If you haven't seen this before I'd recommend you try and calculate the answer for yourself.

the chance is 50%, since once he opened the door with a goat in it there are 2 doors left, and you have the option to switch, so you have 2 door
