There are three bags, one contains only red marbles, one contains only green marbles and the last contains both red and green. You do not know how many marbles are in each bag. Each of the bags is incorrectly labelled. How many times do you have to draw to figure out the correct labels of each bag?

5 Answers

One draw

two draws max

Draw one from each bag first (i.e. three in total) - two will be of the same colour. You could get red, green and green, for example. In that case, the bag you drew the red from is red only. Now you need to work out which of the other 2 bags is green only and which is mixed. So then you need to draw one from each of the 2 bags until you find a red - the one you draw the red from is the mixed bag. Therefore, the total number of draws you would need is unknown.

Let’s play a game of Russian roulette. You are tied to your chair and can’t get up. Here’s a gun. Here’s the cylinder of the gun, six chambers, all empty. Now watch me as I put two bullets in the gun, adjacent to each other. I close the cylinder and spin it. I put a gun to your head and pull the trigger. Click. Lucky you! Now I’m going to pull the trigger one more time. Which would you prefer, that I spin the cylinder first, or that I just pull the trigger?
