## anonymous one year ago What is the probability of hitting each target if it is assumed that a player’s throw will always hit the board? Hint: The probability of hitting each target is the area of the target hole divided by the total area of the target. Take the value of π to be 3.14. @zepdrix

Example: |dw:1444220190974:dw| Area of board = $$\pi r^2=\pi (3^2)=9\pi$$ Area of target = $$\pi r^2=\pi (0.5^2)=0.25\pi$$ Assuming the hits are random, Probability of hitting target = $$0.25\pi / 9\pi = 1/36$$
