Problem 22
Real numbers between 0 and 1, inclusive, are chosen in the following manner. A fair coin is flipped. If it lands heads, then it is flipped again and the chosen number is 0 if the second flip is heads and 1 if the second flip is tails. On the other hand, if the first coin flip is tails, then the number is chosen uniformly at random from the closed interval . Two random numbers and are chosen independently in this manner. What is the probability that ?

Travis has to babysit the terrible Thompson triplets. Knowing that they love big numbers, Travis devises a counting game for them. First Tadd will say the number , then Todd must say the next two numbers ( and ), then Tucker must say the next three numbers (, , ), then Tadd must say the next four numbers (, , , ), and the process continues to rotate through the three children in order, each saying one more number than the previous child did, until the number is reached. What is the th number said by Tadd?
