The Monty Hall problem goes like this:

Imagine you’re on a TV game show, and you’re given the choice of three doors: Behind one door is a car; behind the other two doors are goats. You don’t know which is which. Suppose you pick Door Number 1. Now the host, Monty, who knows what’s behind the doors, always opens another door that has a goat, say Door Number 2. He then says, “Before opening door Number 1, I’m offering you the chance to switch to Door Number 3?” Is it to your advantage to switch?

The correct answer is ‘Yes’…
