Monty Hall problem

There is a famous problem that was presented in the American television game show Let's Make a Deal. In the show there is a part where the host presents a probability puzzle for the contestant. What makes this puzzle interesting is that the answer is a bit counter-intuitive at first. Yet, even when explained and proven, some still are not convinced by the answer. This problem is the Monty Hall Problem.

With this post I will show a way to get the correct answer to the puzzle by implementing it. Then simulating the puzzle enough times to have an answer without complicated math.
