Garrett throws a dart at a circular dart board. The dartboard has a radius of 15 inches.?

and the bulls eye in the center of the dartboard has a radius of 2 inches. What is the probability that a dart thrown at random within the dartboard will hit the bulls eye?

Answer 1

It depends on how much beer Garrett has had to drink so far, so there is no definitive answer from your choices, until we have that information.

Answer 2

Assuming he hits the board every time (and doesn’t miss the board completely)…

We need to find the area of the board.
A = π * r^2
A = π * 15^2
A = π * 225
A = Approx. 706.8584 in^2

We need to find the area of the bull’s eye.
A = π * r^2
A = π * 2^2
A = π * 4
A = Approx. 12.5664 in^2

Now to find the probability of hitting the bull’s eye.
12.5664 / 706.8584 * 100% = Approx.1.8%
