The Monty Hall Problem simulator

A couple of days ago, I told to my oldest daughter about the Monty Hall problem, the famous probability puzzle with a counter-intuitive solution. My daughter didn’t believe me. Even when I told her all about the probabilities, the added information, and the other stuff, she still couldn’t “feel” it. I looked for an online simulator and couldn’t find anything that I liked. So, I decided to create a simulation Jupyter notebook.

I’ve uploaded the notebook to GitHub, in case someone else wants to play with it [link].
