 Question 437921: a diagram shows a square dartboard.the side of the dartboard measures 30 inches.the square shaded region at the center has a side that measures 10 inches.If darts thrown at the board are equally likely to land anywhere on the board,what is the theoretical probability that a dart does NOt land in the shaded region Answer by htmentor(807)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!The total area of the board = 30*30 = 900 square inches The area of the shaded region = 10*10 = 100 square inches The probability of not landing in the shaded region is the ratio of the unshaded area to the total area The unshaded area = 900 - 100 = 800 square inches Therefore, the probability is: P(unshaded) = 800/900 = 8/9 = 0.8889
