A 5 meter long wire is cut into two pieces. If the longer piece is then used to form a perimeter of a square, what is the probability that the area of the square will be more than 1 if the original wire was cut at an arbitrary point?

Since the question says longer piece is used to form a perimeter of a square:
We have Perimeter between 2.5 meter and 5 meter
It implies: side of a square will be between 2.5/4 equals 5/8 and 5/4, On a number line it will be represented as : 5/8__________1__favourable___5/4

Probability= favourable/Total
Favourable= 5/4-1=1/4
Total= 5/4-5/8= 5/8

Probability= 1/4 divided by 5/8 which equals to 2/5 Ans.
