Two people are playing a game which involves taking it in turns to eat chillies. There are 5 mild chillies and 1 hot chilli. Assuming the game is over when the hot chilli is eaten (and that I don't like hot chillies), is it a disadvantage to go first? What is the probability that I will eat the chilli if I go first? How about if there are 6 mild and 2 hot?
Isnt the probability with 1 chili 1/6 on the first go and 1/5 on the second.
With 2 chilli, 1/4 on the 1st go, 2/7 on the 2nd go.
So its better to go first both times?
