Suppose you have made it to the final round of a game show. You can win a car that is behind one of three doors. The game show host asks you to pick a door. You choose door number 1. He tells you that he knows where the car is, and opens one of the remaining doors that does not have the car, say door number 3. Now he asks you whether you would like to switch to door number 2. Should you switch doors?
