Area of circle with radius 0.5 m

A circle = (0.5)2 = 0.25πm2

Area of rectangle = 3 ×2=6m2

Probability (geometric) = (measure of specified region part)/(measure of whole region)

Probability that tie will land inside the circle with diameter 1m 

= (area of circle)/(area of rectangle) 

= 0.25πm2/6m2

= (1/4)x(π/6)
