**Description **

By scaffolding this challenge into many seemingly unrelated challenges, students are asked to think laterally about applying their knowledge to an interesting solution involving escape and probability.

The evil zBot has captured mBot and he needs your help! Use probability to help him escape with the best chance of success!
