Only the gameshow host knows where the car is located. Assume that you get to keep what you find behind the door you choose to open. Also, assume that you like cars much more than goats! The gameshow host asks you to choose a door to open. Once you have made your choice, he walks over to one of the two unchosen doors, and then opens that door which does not have the car behind it. In a situation where both unchosen doors have goats behind them, he picks one randomly. So, for instance, if you had picked Door 1, and the car was behind Door 1, the gameshow host would have opened either Door 2 or Door 3 at random.
