Ashley, Bob, Carol and Doug are rescued from a desert island by a pirate who forces them to play a game. Each of the four, in alphabetical order by first name, is forced to roll two dice. If the total on the two dices is equal to 8 or 9, the person rolling the dice is forced to walk to plank. The players go in order until one player loses: A, B, C, D, A, B... What is the probability that Doug survives?
