The total area of the dart board is 25*Pi.
Area of the dart board with radius 1cm is Pi.
Now the probability that the dart hit the board within 1cm from the centre will be Pi/ 25Pi.
So the answer is 1/25.

A professional can hit the bulls eye all the time, whereas a novice through
results in random hit. We don't know wheather Pete is a professional or novice?

Thus, we can't determine the probability of the event!
