During this week in math class, I learned about geometric probability. There are three different types of probabilities. There is one for length, one for angle measure, and one for area. But, they all use theoretical probability, which is the amount of outcomes in a certain event divided by the number of outcomes in the sample space. For this blog post, I will be focusing on the length. Lets say, a dot is placed somewhere on line AD. Find the probability that the dot will be on line BC. Well, what you do is that you put the length of line BC over the length. So, the probability would be 5/10, or simplified to 1/2. You can do this for any probability problem with length. I hoped you learned something.
