Task 13: Play the Percentages

Post by Adam on Mon 30 Nov 2015, 18:55

Tonight's task is a simple challenge. For this task, there are 9 boxes with dollar amounts that can be added or deducted from the group pot. 4 boxes contain $10000 that can be added to the pot. 5 boxes contain -$10000 that can be deducted from the pot.

You have 2 options for each box:
1. You can open a box and whatever amount is in the box will be added or deducted from the group pot.
2. You can eliminate a box. I’ll open and reveal what is inside the box but it will not be added or deducted. Eliminating negative amounts without opening them will improve your odds of opening the positive amounts.

You can work together and discuss your strategy as a team and open/eliminate as many boxes as you want. You have 2 hours to complete.

Not sure if I understand this... We'll choose which ones we want to take a risk with and which to throw out?

You'll pick a box 1-9 and decide to open it or eliminate it. If you eliminate it, I'll reveal what is in the box. If you open it, I'll reveal what is in the box and it will be added/deducted from the pot.

The more negative ones you eliminate, the better your chances of opening positive amounts.

Do you think we should just each take turns going? I think me, you, and maybe Kim are still online.

I have no idea. This challenge is luck. All we know is out of the 9 boxes, 4 are good and 5 are bad.

Lets start with box 1. Open it or eliminate?

Or we just keep eliminating and then hopefully when we get down to 2 boxes...it will be one good and one bad and then we eliminate one and hope its the bad one and then we open the last good one. If it doesn't work out at least we got some money out of this challenge.
