This question isn't very clear in what it is asking. I thought it wanted the probability of selecting an x+y < 4 value from the endpoints given. It's just too ambiguous

Bunuel karishma Could you please explain why do we take (0,4) and (4,0) to form a triangle and not (0,3) and (3,0) ? We want x+y to be <4. At the point (0,4) , x=0 and y=4 , hence x+y are not <4. What am I missing here?

I am too, having a problem comprehending this question. If x+y < 4, why the area included (4, 0) & (0, 4) ? I'm quite sure you meant x+y <= 4, otherwise, we cannot calculate this using areas.
