## Three People In A Room

Three people enter a room and have a green or blue hat placed on their head. They cannot see their own hat, but can see the other hats.

The color of each hat is purely random. They could all be green, or blue, or any combination of green and blue.

They need to guess their own hat color by writing it on a piece of paper, or they can write 'pass'.

They cannot communicate with each other in any way once the game starts. But they can have a strategy meeting before the game.

If at least one of them guesses correctly they win $50,000 each, but if anyone guess incorrectly they all get nothing.

What is the best strategy?

If at least one of them guesses correctly they win $50,000 each, but if anyone guess incorrectly they all get nothing.

What is the best strategy?

Hint:

Simple strategy: Elect one person to be the guesser, the other two pass. The guesser chooses randomly 'green' or 'blue'. This gives them a 50% chance of winning.

Better strategy: If you see two blue or two green hats, then write down the opposite color, otherwise write down 'pass'.

It works like this ('-' means 'pass'):

Hats: GGG, Guess: BBB, Result: Lose

Hats: GGB, Guess: --B, Result: Win

Hats: GBG, Guess: -B-, Result: Win

Hats: GBB, Guess: G--, Result: Win

Hats: BGG, Guess: B--, Result: Win

Hats: BGB, Guess: -G-, Result: Win

Hats: BBG, Guess: --G, Result: Win

Hats: BBB, Guess: GGG, Result: Lose

Result: 75% chance of winning!

YES NO

## The Secret Santa Exchange

A group of ten friends decide to exchange gifts as secret Santas. Each person writes his or her name on a piece of paper and puts it in a hat. Then each person randomly draws a name from the hat to determine who has him as his or her secret Santa. The secret Santa then makes a gift for the person whose name he drew.

When it's time to exchange presents, each person walks over to the person he made the gift for and holds his or her left hand in his right hand.

What is the probability that the 10 friends holding hands form a single continuous circle?

When it's time to exchange presents, each person walks over to the person he made the gift for and holds his or her left hand in his right hand.

What is the probability that the 10 friends holding hands form a single continuous circle?

Hint: It's not as difficult as it seems.
It's the number of ways the friends can form a circle divided by the number of ways the names can be drawn out of the hat.

1/10

For a group of n friends, there are n! (n factorial) ways to draw the names out of the hat. Since a circle does not have a beginning and end, choose one person as the beginning and end of the circle. There are now (n-1)! ways to distribute the remaining people around the circle. Thus the probability of forming a single circle is

(n-1)! / n!

Since n! = (n-1)! * n (for n > 1), this can be rewritten as

(n-1)! / (n*(n-1)!)

Factoring out the (n-1)! from the numerator and denominator leaves

1/n

as the probability.
