Hi All,

I decided to post this as a little puzzle, in case others are interested. I am not great with understanding this sort of thing, although I think I have the answer now … so offer this for answers from others who know the solution to this sort of thing.

Anyway, here was my query …

You have five monsters, which the PCs will kill one after the other. The first four monsters have 10% chance of dropping a gold coin and the last one has 60% chance.

My questions for your answer (and please show your working), is what is the probability of the party collecting:-

A) One gold coin.

B) Two gold coins.

C) Three gold coins.

D) Four gold coins.

E) Five gold coins.

As I say, I believe I have my solution now and will post it a little later after others have had the opportunity to post their own answers.

Thanks all, Lance.
