  1. Hi,
    Could you please help me resolve this question:

    Three players Lal, Krishna and Aswini are playing a game in which they toss a coin cyclically in the order – Lal, Krishna, Aswini, Lal, Krishna, Aswini, Lal. …- till a head shows. The player who gets a head on the coin first wins the game. The coin is loaded with P(Heads) = 0.25 and P(Tails) = 0.75. What is the probability that Krishna wins the game?

    • I plan to solve a similar question in a slightly later post 🙂 So do have a little patience and I will resolve this. (I guess the answer would be something like 16/37)

      regards
