## anonymous 4 years ago If a fly is buzzing randomly around a room 8 ft long, 12 ft wide and 10 ft high, what is the probability that, at any given time, the fly is within 6 feet of the ceiling? Express your answer as a common fraction.

plz help!

total area is 8 * 12 * 10 = 960 within 6 feet area is 8 * 12 * 6

ok sooo

8 * 12 * 6 = 576 $\frac{8 * 12 * 6}{8*12*10} = \frac{6}{10} = \frac{3}{5}$
