|Casey Bridge, an eighth grader at a Chicago Public School, approached Charles Tillman at a fundraiser. She needed help with a math problem, and Tillman was the best one to help her with it:
The Packers play the Bears 4 times in two seasons. The Packers, being a much better team, have an 80% chance of winning each game. What is the probability that the Bears win all four games? What is the probability that the Bears win at least one game?
For good reason, Tillman was not happy about the response. He wrote a note to the teacher:
This is Charles "Peanut" Tillman of the Chicago Bears and I'm shocked that you would have a problem like this for your students. The probability that the Bears would win in my opinion is 100%. Please do not and I repeat DO NOT send them home with math homework that is disrespectful to our team, city and our beloved Chicago Bears.
