A and B throw a die alternatively till one of them gets 6
A and B throw a die alternatively till one of them gets ‘6’ and win the game. Find their respective probabilities of winning, If A starts first
Let S denote the success(getting a ‘6’) and F denote the failure(Not getting a ‘6’).
P(A wins in the first throw)
A gets the third throw, when the first throw by A and second throw by B result into failures.
P(A wins in the third throw)
P(A wins in the 5th throw)
