I had e-mailed you a few weeks ago looking for some information on switching problems. I would like to thank you for your help.

I would like to use the multi-stage Monty Hall problem in my presentation, however I need some help with it. Would you be able to explain to me how the probabilities were calculated for the PICK,SWITCH,STICK (.375) and PICK,SWITCH,SWITCH (.625) strategies?

I have contacted M. Bhaskara Rao but have not heard back from him at this time. I am under the gun since I have to make the presentation on Tuesday night.

Your help is greatly appreciated.

Thanks again.
