Two persons, A and B, are to play a serious of independent games, with A’s winning probability in each game = p and B’s winning probability = q = 1 – p. The game ends when the total number of winnings of one of the players is 2 greater than the number of winnings of the other player, and that player with more winnings wins the whole game. (For example, suppose the result of first 6 games is [A wins, B wins, B wins, A wins, A wins, A wins]. Then, A wins 4 games and B wins 2 games. So, A wins the whole game.)<br /><br /> Show that the probability that A wins the whole game is .<br /><br /><br /><br />2. Two players A and B plays a series of independent games, with A’s probability of winning for each game = p and B’s probability of winning = 1 – p. When A wins, B pays A $1, and when B wins, A pays B $1. A starts with $M, and B starts with an infinite amount of money (i.e. B will never ruin). The whole game will end only when A runs out of money (i.e. “ruins”).
