Four siblings are sitting down to eat some mashed potatoes for lunch: Ethan has 1 ounce of mashed potatoes, Macey has 2 ounces, Liana has 4 ounces, and Samuel has 8 ounces. This is not fair. A blend consists of choosing any two children at random, combining their plates of mashed potatoes, and then giving each of those two children half of the combination. After the children's father performs four blends consecutively, what is the probability that the four children will all have the same amount of mashed potatoes?
Thanks I was confused on how to solve this problem
