You are a contestant. You have the choice of three curtains. Behind
one is the Grand Prize, the other 2 have goats. You pick a number and
then Monty opens a second door (not the winner of course). You are
then given the choice to A)keep your original door or B) change to the
remaining door. Is it in your best interest to switch? Why?

I've been arguing this one for a while.
Please explain your reasoning in detail.
