Expert's answer

Total area=Area of the bigger circle= Ac=Pi*(radius of the dashboard)^2=3.14*4*4=50.24 square in.

Desired area=Area of the shaded smaller square= As=2*2=4 square in.

Then Geometric Probability= Area of the shaded smaller square/Area of the bigger circle=As/Ac=4/50.24 is approximately equal to 0.08.

Desired area=Area of the shaded smaller square= As=2*2=4 square in.

Then Geometric Probability= Area of the shaded smaller square/Area of the bigger circle=As/Ac=4/50.24 is approximately equal to 0.08.
