  1. Please pass the salt

    Assumptions 1. Author had the salt to start with, with Amber sitting on the opposite side of the table. 2. Amber had the pepper to start with. 3. Amber handed the pepper directly to Chris, bypassing Becky Therefore, Salt from Author to Amber = 2 units. (He had to 'slide' it to her because she was too far away to pass it directly). Salt from Amber to Chris = 1 unit (passed directly) Pepper from Amber to Becky = 1 unit. Therefore 2 = 2????
  2. Correct. Variable change.
  3. Swap. 33.3 % before for the girl, 66.6% for the host. The odds haven't changed, but the host is offering her his 66.6%probability. Take it.
