    A three man jury vs a one man jury, which has better prob of making the correct decis

    A three-man jury (using majority rules) has two members each of whom independently has probability p of making the correct decision and a third member who flips a fair coin for each decision.
    A one-man jury has probability p of making the correct decision.
    Which jury has the better probability of making the correct decision?
