Problem 20

Suppose that distinct integer values are written on each of 3 cards. These cards are then randomly given the designations A, B, and C. The values on cards A and B are then compared. If the smaller of these values is then compared with the value on card C, what is the probability that it is also smaller than the value on card C?
