Vinnie is a huge Yankees fan. He can win tickets to Opening Day if he solves the simple "Blue and White" test below:
are presented with three cloth bags. Each is marked "Blue", "White", or
"Either". One bag contains only blue chips, one bag contains only white
chips, and the third bag has both. All of the bags are marked
incorrectly. You can choose one chip at a time, but cannot see beyond
that chip to what else is in the bag.
What is the fewest number of chips you can choose to re-label each bag correctly?
