as in 50-50 probability is 50% and double dip if in first choice our answer is correct our double dip will be wasted probability of correct will be 25% and now if our answer is wrong then probability of wrong 75% and then next choice probability of correct is 33.3% and now probability of correct will be

P=25%+75%*33.3%

P=50% ]]>

What I meant is at a given point of time. So if he takes 50-50, the probability is 50% right away, In double dip it is 25% first and then 33.3%. So yes, overall probability is higher in double dip, but at the point of answering the question, you have higher probability with 50-50. But yes it is a welcome point

]]>In 50-50 the probability of winning is 50%

In Double Dip the probabilities are first chance 25% and second chance 33.33%. So the total probability is 25%+33.33%=58.33%

So Double Dip is better than 50-50 from the contestants perspective.

Comments welcome.

After that, it might get riskier for an average contestant in my opinion.
