2006 Extension 2 HSC Q5d)
In a chess match between the Home team and the Away team, a game is
played on board 1, board 2, board 3 and board 4.
On each board, the probability that the Home team wins is 0.2, the
probability of a draw is 0.6 and the probability that the Home team loses
is 0.2.
The results are recorded by listing the outcomes of the games for the
Home team in board order. For example, if the Home team wins on
board 2, draws on board 2, loses on board 3 and draws on board 4, the
result is recorded as WDLD.
