Probabilities for the Name Game

  • David Hopkins (a1)


A children's television game is played as follows: Four postcards from children who have written in to the programme are selected at random and the children's names are written on a board. The presenters then draw letters of the alphabet one by one from a bingo-style randomising machine and, after each letter is drawn, all occurrences of that letter in any of the children's names are crossed off. The winner of the game is the first child whose name is completely crossed off.
