Monty Hall problem

Terms from Statistics for HCI: Making Sense of Quantitative Data

A probability problem derived from a 1950s quiz challenge, where participants had to guess which of three doors concealed a prize, but were allowed to change their their initial choice after the quizmaster (Monty Hall) had opened one of the remaining doors. An example of a problem where common sense may not help and careful calculation is needed.
