Hi, I was just looking at this exercise. I am a bit surprised we are expected to solve this in less than 2mn. Do a lot of people succeed to do that ? Just taking into account the time to :
- read the exercise
- understand it
- maybe draw quickly on your paper
- formulate the approach
- solve
- maybe read again some parts of the problem in the middle to confirm you are on track and not missing important information, that would take more around 2:30-3:00 even for a rapid problem solver. What do you think ?

Circumference = 4\sqrt{\pi{\sqrt{3}} = 2*pi*r
pi*r*r = 4*sqrt(3)/pi

probability of lying outside the painted area = 3/4
Thus lying inside= 1/4

probability of lying in the painted area = area of equilateral triangle / area of circle= (sqrt(3)*side*side/4) / pi*r*r
=>r =2
