### The figure shown represents a board with four rows of pegs

The figure shown represents a board with four rows of pegs, and at the bottom of the board are four cells numbered 1 to 4. Whenever the ball shown passes through the opening between two adjacent pegs in the same row, it will hit the peg directly beneath the opening. The ball then has probability 1/2 of passing through the opening immediately to the left of that peg and probability 1/2 of passing through the opening immediately to the right. What is the probability that when the ball passes throught the first two pegs at the top it will end up in cell 2?

What is the best method/way to do this one

can someone suggest how do I put up the image .. Thanks
