The Game Show

A stack of cash bills.

David is on a game show. In one of three envelopes is a large cash prize while the other two are stuffed with worthless play money. The envelopes, which look identical, are labeled A, B, and C. Before David picks anything, the host explains the rules. Once David chooses an envelope, the host is going to open and show David one of the remaining envelopes filled with play money and then give David a choice: stay with his pick or switch to the other unopened envelope. David picks envelope A. The host opens envelope B and shows that it contains worthless play money. David decides that he’s going to switch to envelope C.
