Question

Suppose you drop a die at random on the rectangular region shown in figure. What is the probability that it will land inside the circle with diameter \(1\rm{m}\)?

 

Text Solution

 

What is known?

A die is dropped at random on the rectangular region as shown in figure.

Length of rectangular region \(=3\,\rm{m}\)

Breadth of rectangular region \(=2\,\rm{m}\)

Diameter of the circle \(=1 \,\rm{m}\)

∴ Radius of the circle \(=0.5\,\rm{m}\)

What is unknown?

The probability that the die dropped at random will land inside the circle with diameter \(1\,\rm{m}\)?

Steps:

Area of rectangular region

\[\begin{align}\text{}& =L\,\times B \\ {} & =3\,\times 2 \\{} & =6{{\text{m}}^{2}} \\\end{align}\]

Diameter of circular region \(=1 \rm{m}\) \(\) 

Radius of circular region \(=\frac{1}{2}\text{m}\) 

\[\begin{align}\text{Area of circular region}&= \pi r^{2} \\ & =\pi \,\times {{\left( \frac{1}{2} \right)}^{2}} \\ &=\frac{\pi }{4}\end{align}\]

Probability that it will land inside the circle

\[\begin{align} \text{Probability that it will land inside the circle} & =\frac{\text{ Number of possible outcomes }}{\text{ No of favourable outcomes }} \\    &  =\quad \frac{\text{Area of circular region}}{\text{Area of rectangular region}}  \\    & =\quad \frac{\frac{\pi }{4}}{6}  \\   &  =\frac{\pi }{24}  \\
\end{align}\]

The probability that it will land inside the circle is \(\begin{align}\frac{\pi}{24}\end{align}\)

  

Frequently Asked Questions



What are Class 10 NCERT Exemplars?
While getting good scores in school tests is a desirable outcome, it is not a reliable indicator of how strong your child’s math foundation really is. Many students who score well in school exams in their earlier years, might struggle with math in higher grades because of a weak foundation. At Cuemath, we evaluate your child’s grasp of math fundamentals, and take corrective actions immediately. Also, your child may have limited exposure in their school, and in most cases, may not feel challenged to learn more. Cuemath's customised learning plan ensures your child is challenged with varied difficulty levels of questions at every stage.
