This is an interesting riddle from here: http://www.brand.site.co.il/riddles/201607q.htm [Broken](adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I'm having difficulty understanding the problem. If each hat is black/white with 50-50 probability, independent of the colors of other hats, then the probability of winning for n=2 is always 1/4, no matter what strategy they plan. Can you please provide an example strategy, in which the probability is not 1/4?
