A football is kept inside a circular field. What is the probability of this ball being closer to the centre of the circle than to the periphery of the ground?
A. Radius of the circular field is 15 m.
B. Radius of the football is 5 cm.
C. Ratio of circumference and diameter of the circle is constant.
Mark (e): if none of the above four options are correct.
This question can be solved without using any of the statements given.
Football will be closer to the centre than to the circumference if the point is lying in the segment A.
Area of segment A=14πr2
So, probability of point being closer to the circumference =14πr2πr2=14
[The probability of ball being closer to the centre = Area of the smaller circle insideArea of the larger circle =A(A+B)=14]
