A boat is located at a random location uniformly distributed inside of the circular

pool of radius 1 mile. The boat is tied by a rope to a pole located directly at the center of the

pool. A bird lands on the rope at the uniformly random location. If X is the distance between

the center of the pool and the bird compute E[X] and var(X).
