Mark's itinerary (Posted on 2016-05-26) Difficulty: 3 of 5
A certain salesman, called Mark O.V. delivers his goods to three cities: C1, C2, & C3, staying only for one day at a time in each of them.
His stay in C1 is always followed by going next to C2. If he delivers in either C2 or C3 he is thrice as likely to continue to C1, than to the other city.

Provide your estimate of the number of working days in each of the cities
within a period of 12,000 working days.

It looks like you merely verified what you derived by other means.  My solution shows how to simplify things down and reason out the solution.  Our methods aren't all that different.  I just wondered if mine was more like what Ady was looking for.
