The Monty Hall Problem

you are on a game show on television. on this game show the idea is to win a car as a prize. the game show host shows you three doors. he says that there is a car behind one of the doors and there are goats behind the other two doors. he asks you to pick a door. you pick a door but the door is not opened. then the game show host opens one of the doors you didn't pick to show a goat (because he knows what is behind the doors). then he says that you have one final chance to change your mind before the doors are opened and you get a car or a goat. so he asks you if you want to change your mind and pick the other unopened door instead. what should you do?

ANSWER: you should always change and pick the other door because you will double your chance of winning the car.
