The probability would be the ratio of the segment lengths to the total. Let \[S_{AB} = The\ length\ of\ a\ segment\ from\ A\ to\ B\] \[P_{AB} = The\ probability\ for\ a\ random\ point\ to\ be\ on\ the\ segment\ AB\] \[ \rightarrow P_{LM} = S_{LM}/S_{LQ}\] \[ \rightarrow P_{NP} = S_{NP}/S_{LQ}\] \[ \rightarrow P_{OQ} = S_{OQ}/S_{LQ}\] \[ \rightarrow P_{MQ} = S_{MQ}/S_{LQ}\] etc.

The probability of x being on a line segment is the length of the segment divided by the total length of the line. Which part of this is confusing?
anonymous
  • anonymous
so the first one would be 2/17
anonymous
  • anonymous
Nearly. 2 is the length of LM, but the length of LQ is not 17.
anonymous
  • anonymous
so 2/24
anonymous
  • anonymous
Yes.

Np=12/24 OQ= 12/24 MQ= 19/24

MQ is 22 units in length. Otherwise those numbers are correct.
