Latest: Box of balls Rating: 4.00
A box contains p white balls and q black balls. Beside the box there is a pile of black balls. Two balls are taken out from the box.
If they are of the same colour, a black ball from the pile is put into the box.
If they are of different colours, the white ball is put back into the box.
This procedure is repeated until the last pair of balls are removed from the box and one last ball is put in.

What is the probability that this last ball is white?
