Well I am doing a minor project on dimensions and probablity.Please friends try this out:-----------(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

A coin of diameter d is tossed randomly onto the rectangular cartesian plane .

What is the probablity that the coin does not intersect any line whose equation is of the forms :-------

(a) y=mx+c

(b) (x/a)+(y/b)=1

I am trying first with 2-D figure but if I get a proper answer I can find for euclidean plane too.
