Worksheet: Geometric Probability
In this worksheet, we will practice using lengths and areas to find geometric probability.
A real number is randomly chosen between 10 and 100. Find the probability that is closer to 50 than to 100.
At an animal park, the keeper feeds the lion at a random time between 2 and 3 pm for about 5 minutes. A family decides to go to the lion area at a random time between 2 and 3 pm and, in case the lion keeper has not started yet to feed the lions, to wait for 15 minutes for the keeper to arrive before leaving. What is the probability that the family sees the lions being fed?
The following dartboard is made of one large circle with a circumference of inches and a smaller inner circle with a circumference of inches, each divided into eight equal sectors.
What is the arc length of the sector created by sections and ?
- A inches
- B inches
- C inches
- D inches
- E inches
What is the probability of hitting the section of the dartboard labeled ,to the nearest hundredth?
What is the probability of hitting the section of the dartboard labeled twice in a row, to the nearest thousandth?
