In the best-of -five hockey series , the probability of winning the next game increases for each team by 0.1 if the previous game was won. If the teams ,the Ironmen and the Mustangs ,are in such a series and at the start of the series are evenly matched, what is the probability that (a) the ironmen will win in three straight? (b) the Mustang win the series?
I am not sure on how to answer or figure this question out.
