so in the world series youve got two teams and the series ends when one team wins its fourth game(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

the teams are say equally likely to win any one game

what is the probability that the series will last exactly four games?

five games? six games? seven games?

if i know 4 i could figure out 5 6 and 7 of course

thanks
