Circle
Asked by | 10 Apr, 2010, 01:53: PM Expert Answer

Dear Student,

The solution of your problem is as follows -

Consider a circle of radius R, then a randomly chosen point would be closer to centre than the circumference if it lies in a circle with same centre but of radius R/2 (as shown in the figure). Therefore,

P(point closer to center than circumference) = Area of shaded region (circle with radius R/2) / Area of the circle with radius R

=> P(point closer to center than circumference) = π(R/2)2 / π(R)2

= π(R)2 / 4π(R)2

= 1/4.

Regards,
