You are hiking to a ranger station. There is one correct path. You come to a fork and randomly take the path on the left. You come to another fork and randomly take the path on the right. What is the probability you are still on the correct path? https://dw6y82u65ww8h.cloudfront.net/organisations/48/Screen%20Shot%202015-05-08%20at%209.49.09%20AM.png

There is a 1/2 probability that you took the first right path, then another 1/2 probability that you took the next fork correctly

1/2 x 1/2 = 1/4 probability that you took the correct path
