Because economy class is bonkers…
This post describes yet another logic puzzle. YANL? I love logic puzzles 🙂
100 passengers are lined up, ready to board their flight home. Each has a boarding pass for one of the 100 seats on the plane, and in a normal situation everyone would board and sit in their assigned seat. On this flight though the first passenger is crazy, doesn’t even read his boarding pass and sits in a randomly selected seat. Each passenger after him either sits in their assigned seat (if it’s free) or picks one at random.
What is the probability that the 100th passenger sits in his assigned seat?
