 Question 573514: Here's another puzzle featuring squares -- but this time there's really no geometry involved, just a little game. Suppose we play the following simple game on the 5-by-5 grid of squares shown at right. • Begin with your game piece on the upper left square (marked "S" for "Start"). • You move your game piece by flipping a coin: o If the coin comes up "heads", you move one square to the right. o If it comes up "tails", you move one square down. o If you are on the right edge and get "heads", you do nothing and wait for the next coin flip. Similarly if you are on the bottom row and get "tails". • You keep moving until you either o lose by landing on one of the red squares along the diagonal, or o win by arriving safely at the lower right corner (marked "F" for "Finish"). Your challenge this week is to calculate the probability that you will win this game. Assume that the coin you flip is a fair one. Click here to see answer by richard1234(5390)
