Ask Marilyn: About the Game Show Problem
John Elion of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, writes:
Marilyn: Every now and then, I go back and re-read the game show columns. I'm impressed. You kept sticking with your answer, despite opposition from such distinguished correspondents. I didn't believe you at first, but I worked it out for myself by simply writing out all the possibilities (and also experimentally, yes it was tedious!). Switching is indeed better.
Your "million-door" explanation and the UFO examples were both well-written and helpful at clearing up the conventional misconception one wants to cling to even in the face of clear evidence. Enjoy your column. Thanks for writing, and for not backing down.
