QUESTION

What would you do and why?

THE KEY TO THE MYSTERY

This one of the simplest and yet extremely deceptive problems of all time. It is more commonly known as "The Monty Hall Problem" which gets its name from Monty Hall, who was the original host of the American game show "Let's make a deal!". There is some fun history behind the riddle: Marilyn vos Savant, a woman famous for having a very high IQ (high enough for the Guinness Book of World Records), wrote a column for `Parade´ magazine called `Ask Marilyn´ where readers could write math-related questions for her to answer. One of the readers sent his riddle in to her and her response caused over ten thousand readers, almost a thousand of which had PhD's, to write her and tell her she was wrong.

Unfortunately for them she was right.

Believe it or not, the right move to make in the situation proposed by the riddle is to always switch doors. If you switch doors you will have a 2/3 chance to win the million dollars and if you do not switch doors you will have a 1/3 chance.

An elegant explanation: Assume that you will always choose to switch doors. The only way for you to lose after switching is for you to have initially picked the door with the million dollars behind it. The probability of that happening is definitely and always 1/3, and because of that you will always have a 2/3 probability of winning if you choose to switch doors. Again, if your policy is to always switch doors, then you will always win if you initially picked the a door with a goat behind it, and you will always lose if you initially picked the door with the million dollars behind it.

Another explanation: What the game show host is offering by allowing you to switch doors is effectively the same as the host offering you to select one door and then giving you the opportunity to instead take what is behind both of the doors that you did not pick.
