The Good, The Bad & The Queens.

Remember doing wordy math problems in junior high? Like: Katie has twenty bucks and wants to buy oranges. One orange cost 25 cents from the Mexican guy on the corner, and $1.10 at the Ralphs. If Katie has a Ralphs card, who can give her a better deal?

This is our Friday wordy math problem:
Steenks has 4 different stores. Within each store are 2 different sized containers. Sometimes, the same thing goes in both containers but they have to be different sizes to fit. At 10 am, Steenks had to change out the content in both containers in all four stores due to a hawkish manager. At 12:30 pm, Steenks was told to change the content back in both containers in all four stores due to testy clientele. If Steenks has to make a change at 2:30, what is the probability that the content will be the exact same as it was the day before?
