Help please! Where do I start?
Amy and Bruce are playing a game where a player wins as soon as s/he has two points more than his/her opponent. Both players start at par and points are earned one at a time. If Amy has a 1/6 chance of winning each point, what is the probability that she will win the game? Answer as fraction reduced to lowest terms.
I suppose so. But then you have to worry about what's the probability that Amy starts first .... I suggest you get clarification from your teacher as to what's expected and then let us know. Because I don't plan to spend time doing a calculation only to discover that it's a calculation for the wrong question.
