1,302.3K Views

You, Andrew and Steve decided to play a game of dodge ball. You’re all will be standing in a triangle and you all take turns throwing at one of the others of your choice until there is only one person remaining.

• Your aiming accuracy is 30 percent,
• Andrew aiming accuracy is 50 percent, and
• Steve aiming accuracy is 100 percent i.e. he never misses.

If you hit somebody they are out and no longer get a turn. The order of throwing is You, Andrew, then Steve,

What will be your strategy to have the best chance of winning?

SherlockHolmes Expert Asked on 6th August 2016 in

Your best chance in your first throw is by throwing the ball at air not aiming anyone of Steve or Andrew.

Because in your first chance if you throw ball at Steve and got him hit then next Andrew will throw at you and you will definitely got out because Andrew chance of hitting is 100%

and in your first chance if you throw at Andrew and got him out then Steve will throw the ball at you and in  half case you will got hit.

And if you throw the ball at air Andrew or Steve will throw the ball at each other than you because they have more chance of hitting the target.

So to increase in your chance you have to throw the ball in air in your first chance.[and also by throwing ball  at anyone of Steve or Andrew can cause them to throw back at you and make you out of the game]
