@snowflake0531 am i right with d?

dizzymustang156:

yes

snowflake0531:

50 units in all, 18 shaded, so 18 times 2 is 36

Gucchi:

are you sure?

snowflake0531:

well, how did you do it

dizzymustang156:

i sware its D

snowflake0531:

how'd you get it

Gucchi:

The probability that a point inside the large rectangle is not inside the small rectangle is 1-(18/50) = 32/50. 32/50 = 64%

dizzymustang156:

yes

dizzymustang156:

snowflake0531:
