Maths are AWESOME - The last banana thought experiment
posted February 24 2015 20:26.15 by Giorgos Lazaridis




Here is the scene: You and a friend of yours are on a deserted island and you only have one last banana to eat but not to share. Then you decide to play a game and the winner will eat this banana. You roll a pair of dice twice. In each roll, if the highest number is 1, 2, 3 or 4, then player one wins. If the highest number is 5 or 6 then player 2 wins. You can choose first to be player one or player two. Who would you choose to be?

Maths are so awesome! Do not rush to answer...
