Bob and Jack play a shooting game. In this
game, they have a net at a distance. The net is
made up of 1 mm thick wires. The wires run
vertically and horizontally to form a mesh that
has 5 mm square openings between them. A
bullet 2 mm in diameter must be shot in such a
way that it goes through the net without
touching the wires. Such a shot would result in
100 points. All other scenarios will result in 0
points. Bob is set to start the game. What is
the probability that Bob scores 100 points
from his first shot?
