Bux in a Box (Posted on 2007-02-14) Difficulty: 2 of 5
You are playing the following game. You are offered two closed boxes, each having a random amount of money between $0 and $100 inside. After picking one and noting the amount of money inside, you are asked to state whether the other box contains more or less money. If you are right, you win $1. If wrong, you lose $1. If you play a large number of times, is there a strategy where you can be almost certain to leave with more money than you started with?
