Q3 Matrix Hard
Three players $$A, B$$ and $$C$$ alternatively throw a die in that order, the first player to throw a $$6$$ being deemed the winner. $$A$$'s die is fair where as $$B$$ and $$C$$ throw die with probabilities $$p_1$$ and $$p_2$$ respectively of throwing a $$6$$
If $$p_1=\dfrac15, p_2=\dfrac14$$ the probability that $$A$$ wins the game. $$\dfrac {1}{2}$$
If $$p_1=\dfrac15, p_2=\dfrac14$$, the probability that $$C$$ wins the game $$\dfrac {1}{3}$$
Value of $$p_1$$ so that P($$A$$ wins) $$=$$ P($$B$$ wins) $$\dfrac {1}{4}$$
Value of $$p_2$$ so that the game is equiprobable to all the three players $$\dfrac {1}{5}$$
