Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1probability = area of unshaded part / area of the whole recatngle this will give you a fraction to get a percent you multiply it by 100.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1area unshaded = 26 , area of whole = 50

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1probability = area of unshaded / area of whole = 26/50
