The Con Test
Fletcher, Michael
Australian Senior Mathematics Journal, v23 n1 p17-19 2009
In this article, the author describes the format of the Con Test, an Australian television game show which followed the same general rules and game play as the UK show PokerFace. At the end of each round a contestant needs to decide whether or not he or she should fold. A contestant needs to know how likely it is that he or she is in last place. The author discusses the probability the contestant is in danger of elimination if two correct answers are given. (Contains 1 table.)
