### Re: Markov chains

Why p[10]? How does that get the long term probability of 10?

### Re: Markov chains

Yes, but you did not ask for one.

Wouldn't a Markov chain be quite big here (15 entries).

The matrix is easy to find, so that isn't a problem. What is the next one?

It would mean something is wrong. But since I'm vry lazy, I will just take your word on this one. That matrix is huge.
