rustyjaw Posted October 20, 2004 Report Share Posted October 20, 2004 Years ago in a philosophy class the professor presented the following brain teaser type puzzle to the class. I had forgotten all about it, but yesterday I came across it in a book I'm reading, so I thought I'd see what my esteemed fellow LCVGers might think of it. You are on a game show, think of The Price is Right. The goal of the show is to win a car. You are presented with 3 doors, one door has a car behind it, the other two have balloons behind them. You are asked to pick a door. You choose a door, but it is not opened. Instead the host opens one of the doors you didn't choose to reveal balloons (the host knows what's behind the doors). You are now informed that you have a final chance to change your original guess. What should you do? Please post your reasoning below (no Google cheating!) If you are familiar with this puzzle, please do not post any hints, let those who have not seen it before answer and give their reason(s) why!
