hmm i think i see how u look at it
doing it in 1 Portal he has a chance of 50%.
doing it in 2 Portal he has a chance of 50% in the first portal, and 25% (50% of a 50% chance) in for the second portal. so -> 75%
doing it in 3 Portals means: 50% + 25% + 12.5%. so the one with 87.5% was right
This is not correct. For starters the odds of getting it on one portal is not 50%. You have to account for the odds of it being the right portal. Thus the odds are 1/3 (odds of being the right portal with no incorrect portals open) x 1/2 (odds of getting the drop) which = 1/6 or 16.67% (rounding to two decimal places due to repeating 6).

Threats of violence. We take these seriously and will alert the proper authorities.
Posts containing personal information about other players. This includes physical addresses, e-mail addresses, phone numbers, and inappropriate photos and/or videos.
Harassing or discriminatory language. This will not be tolerated.
