Octahedron Vertex Ponder (Posted on 2014-08-12) Difficulty: 3 of 5
Six bugs simultaneously stand on the six vertices of a regular octahedron, with each bug situated at a different vertex.

Each bug moves simultaneously and independently from its vertex to one of the four adjacent vertices, each with equal probability.

Determine the probability that no two bugs arrive at the same vertex.
