Now when will x be 90— when AB is a diameter and a semi circle is drawn with AB as diameter.
So, P can be anywhere on the semicircle.
Any point within this semi circle will give an angle >90.

Probability =area of semicircle/area of square
Area of semicircle =\(\frac{1}{2}*\pi*(\frac{AB}{2})^2=\frac{\pi*AB^2}{8}\)
Area of square = \(AB^2\)..

Probability =\(\frac{\pi*AB^2}{8AB^2}=\frac{\pi}{8}=\frac{22}{56}\)=~0.4
