Five distinct numbers are randomly distributed to players numbered 1
Five distinct numbers are randomly distributed to players numbered 1 through 5. Whenever two players compare their numbers, the one with the higher one is declared the winner. Initially, players 1 and 2 compare their numbers; the winner then compares her number with that of player 3, and so on. Let X denote the number of times player 1 is a winner. Find P{X = i}, i = 0, 1, 2, 3, 4.
