There is a drunk man who is just leaving the pub, he is so drunk that the probability of him taking a step forward is 0.5, and the probability of him taking a step backwards is also 0.5

There is a zero chance of him not taking a step.

After 20 steps, what is the probability of him being 14 steps back into the pub?

2. Relevant equations

Not sure

3. The attempt at a solution

I have no idea where to start for this question, so if somebody could give me a push in the right direction that would be extremely helpful
