## Charles 'Peanut' Tillman Foils Packers Math Problem

For those who follow the NFL, and in particular the NFC North, you will know that the Chicago Bears and the Green Bay Packers have a heated rivalry. The Bears' Pro-Bowl cornerback Charles "Peanut" Tillman has been a part of that rivalry for his entire NFL career, so it's no wonder he didn't appreciate a certain math problem with a Packers and Bears theme.

As Tillman was promoting his Cornerstone Foundation at a Chicago running store, he was approached by teenage girl who showed him her homework with the following problem:

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?

I wonder if the Bears would win 100 percent of the time, as Tillman suggests, is the correct answer to this problem?
