Garrett throws a dart at a circular dart board. The dart board has a radius, and the bull's eye in the center of the dart board has a radius of 6 inches. What is the probability that a dart thrown at random within the dartboard will hit the bull's eye? Round your answer to the nearest tenth, if necessary.

1. To calculate the probability, we need to know the size of the dartboard and the radius of the bull's eye.

A six-inch radius bull's eye has to be bigger than the eye of any living animal on earth!
