Posted by Sam on Monday, May 31, 2010 at 10:38pm.

Anna and bob play a game in which Anna begins by rolling a fair dice, after which bob tosses a fair coin. They take turns until one of them wins. Anna wins when she rolls a 6. Bob wins when the coin lands on heads. What is the probability that Anna will win the game?

Well there are a number of ways for Anna to win like 1st it is 1/6 the second way can be 5/6*1/2*5/6*1/2*1/6 etc. Where do i go from here to find an exact number for the probability?
