Question description

·Scenario: Game show. You (the contestant on a game show) are given a choice of any of 3 doors to open (A, B, or C). You are told that behind 1 door is a super-mega prize. Behind the other 2 doors is shredded paper. You pick a door (lets just say you chose Door A), the host of the show then opens Door B, and shows you that behind it is shredded paper. The host then asks if you want to keep the door you chose originally (A), or change to Door C. What do you do? HINT: Remember-this IS a math class-and any response you give must be either logical, have a mathematical reason behind it, or both.
