The figure below shows a shaded rectangular region inside a large rectangle: A rectangle of length 10 units and width 5 units is shown. Inside this rectangle is a smaller rectangle of length 4 units and width 2 units placed symmetrically inside the larger rectangle. The smaller rectangle is shaded gray. What is the probability that a point chosen inside the large rectangle is not in the shaded region? 8% 16% 50% 84%

    Now all you gotta do is calculate the rectangle areas and then use them in the formulas I put above. If you have any questions, just ask :)
