4 people play a game of chance. They each take turns until everyone has taken a turn, then they begin a new round. They stay in the same order every round. Every time a player takes a turn, they have a certain chance of winning. When someone wins, the game ends. They all have even odds of winning a game. The chance of someone winning in any given round is 3/5.
What is the probability for each person to win during their turns?
Each person has a different probability of winning during his or her turn. Everyone has the same chance of winning the whole game. A game is not just a single turn; it only
ends when someone wins.
