    The Level Game - Need help!!

    I need help figuring out the chance of success for completing this “level” game.
    Starting with level 1, and making it to the end (level 7)
    Given the % chance of “Success” at each level, is it possible to determine the overall % chance to win?

    Start
    Level 1: 77%
    Level 2: 75%
    Level 3: 71%
    Level 4: 67%
    Level 5: 60%
    Level 6: 50%
    Level 7: 33%
    Win


    So there is a 77% chance to make it to level 2
    Once you are at level 7, there is a 33% chance to win the game.
    I want to know if it is possible to figure out the overall % chance to win the game (and how).
    Thank you for any & all help !

    Re: The Level Game - Need help!!

    To win the entire game you have to win level1, and level2, and level3, and level4, and level5, and level6, and level7.

    Just multiply all of the probabilities together.

    0.77*.75*.71*.67*.60*.5*.33=0.027196958

    So, you have about a 2.72% chance of winning the entire game.
