A box contains $731$ black balls and $2000$ white balls. The following process is to be repeated as long as possible.
(1) arbitrarily select two balls from the box. If they are of the same color, throw them out and put a black ball into the box. (We have sufficient black balls for this).
(2) if they are of different colors, place the white ball back into the box and throw the black ball away.
What will happen at last? Will the process stop with a single black ball in the box or a single white ball in the box or with an empty box?
I am unable to decide how to start and in which direction? should we apply probability or what?
