comment Which sentence among the three sentences is the lie?
Brian, shouldn't p (not Q or not R) in the third assignment result in False? (not T or not T) = (F or F) = F?

Well the slight twist here is that, why couldn't I claim that after one of the doors has been removed, I have a 50% chance of winning with my original selection, as there are two doors left and one of them has a car. I suppose I am not following wikipedia's explanation.

Because the question is if there are three doors, and one of them is removed. Are my chances to win improve to 50% (if I did not change my selection?)

comment Given a die, what is the probability that the second roll of a die will be less than the first roll?
Not everyone...I upvoted the answer that showed the generalized form. But, given the conciseness of Pete's answer (and the fact that I can generalize it myself) I accepted it as the best answer
