Although these issues are mathematically significant, even when controlling for these factors, nearly all people still think each of the two unopened doors has an equal probability and conclude that switching does not matter Mueser and Granberg, Hide Caption 6 of 72 Photos: Several discussants of the paper by Morgan et al.
The show featured Hall getting audience members to gamble on whether they should keep small prizes they had traded their own stuff for -- or risk trading them for what was in a box or behind curtains.
It is based on the deeply rooted intuition that revealing information that is already known does not affect probabilities.

The key is that if the car is behind door 2 the host must open door 3, but if the car is behind door 1 the host can open either door.

Let's Make a Deal! Imagine that the set of Monty Hall's game show Let's Make a Deal has three closed doors. Behind one of these doors is a car; behind the other two are goats.
The Monty Hall problem is a brain teaser, in the form of a probability puzzle, loosely based on the American television game show Let's Make a Deal and named after its original host, Monty Hall. The problem was originally posed (and solved) in a letter by Steve Selvin to the American Statistician in (Selvin a), (Selvin b).
The Monty Hall problem is a well-known puzzle in probability derived from an American game show, Let’s Make a Deal. (The original s-era show was hosted by Monty Hall, giving this puzzle its name.) Intuition leads many people to get the puzzle wrong, and when the Monty Hall problem is presented in a newspaper or discussion list, it often leads to a lengthy argument in letters-to-the-editor and on .Download
