you are a contestant on a game show competing against another person. There are four jars each containing 20 marbles. At the start, one jar has all blue marbles, another has only green marbles, a third has white marbles, and the last has black marbles. You see which jar has which at the beginning (the other contestant does not).

You may redistribute the marbles however you like except three conditions must persist:

every jar must contain at least 1 marble,

every marble must be in a jar,

no jar may contain more than 50 marbles.

Once the redistribution occurs, you and the other person will be blindfolded and jars shuffled and randomly placed on the table. They will pick one jar first then you will pick one from the remaining three. The marbles in each jar are then counted and scored according to their values:

blue = 1

green = 3

white = 5

black = 10

Two questions:

What would be the best configuration of marbles that would most help assist you in winning?
