    Here is this week's POTW:

    -----

    Two people take turns rolling an N-sided die. The object of the game is to roll a higher number than the previous roll. Failure to roll a higher number results in losing the game. Assuming player one rolls first, find the probability that player one wins the game.

    -----

    Remember to read the POTW submission guidelines to find out how to submit your answers!
