# Monty Hall Problem (Let's Make a Deal)

• A fun and famous little example of probability.

• Setup (there are variations):

• Contestant chooses among 3 doors (keep doors unopened), one of which has a car behind it.
• Host (Monty Hall) opens one of the other two doors and allows the contestant to change doors if they want.
• Monty ALWAYS opens a door that has no car behind it.
• When choosing among possible doors to open, Monty chooses randomly.
