Find the probability that you throw a dart and land in the region labeled "G"
Here is a link to the image: I can't place it in here, but if you google the question, the very first image that pops up (A square with different colors and a yellow line going down the middle) you will have the image
My Answer:
Area of one triangle is 1/2*1*1=1/2 units square.
There are 9 in total, so area G = 9/2 units square.

2. The square has side length equal to 10, so the square area is 100 units square.

3. P(landing in G)=Area of G/total area= (9/2)/100=9/200= 0.045

    The whole square has area 100 units^2
    the purple plus green is half of that or 50 units^2
    The pink plus blue is triangle with base of 9 and height of 9
    area of that = (1/2)(9)(9) = 81/2 units^2

    so the area you want = 100-50-81/2 = 9.5 units^2

  4. correction:
    I miscounted. The pink plus blue is triangle with base of 8 and height of 8
    area of that = (1/2)(8)(8) = 32 units^2

    so the area you want = 100-50-32 = 18 units^2
