Suppose you drop a dice in a rectangular region with sides 6 m and 4 m. A circle of diameter 1 m is drawn inside it. What is probability that it will land inside the circle? How did the area if circle become pi/4m square

as diameter is 1 m. so radius=1/2
area of circle=pi*(1/2)^2
                  =pi/4
probability that dice will fall inside the region of circle=area of circle/area of rectangle
                                                                          =(pi/4)/24
                                                                          =pi/96
