Lee, Y.-F.; Ching, W.-K.
International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science & Technology, v37 n7 p833-838 Oct 2006
This note introduces an interesting random walk on a straight path with cards of random numbers. The method of recurrent relations is used to obtain the convergent probability of the random walk with different initial positions.
