This post Two fuses problem is from Cognitive bias.

]]>You are given two fuses and a lighter. Each fuse will burn for exactly 60 minutes. However the rate of burning is irregular, so cutting a fuse in half does not mean a burn time of 30 minutes. You need to time 45 minutes. How do you do it?

]]>Four people come to a river in the night. There is a narrow bridge, but it can only hold two people at a time. They have one torch and, because it’s night, the torch has to be used when crossing the bridge. Person A can cross the bridge in one minute, B in two minutes, C in five minutes, and D in eight minutes. When two people cross the bridge together, they must move at the slower person’s pace. The question is, what is the fastest they can all get across?

]]>This post Monty Hall problem is from Cognitive bias.

]]>Suppose you’re on a game show, and you’re given the choice of three doors: Behind one door is a car; behind the others, goats. You pick a door, say No. 1, and the host, who knows what’s behind the doors, opens another door, say No. 3, which has a goat. He then says to you, “Do you want to pick door No. 2?” Is it to your advantage to switch your choice?
