1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data Each of three indistinguishable blades of grass are bent roughly at their midpoints and clasped by these midpoints so that an observer can't match any of the ends in any way. In other words, all six ends are just dangling and appear completely unrelated. Suppose you are asked to tie the ends together (which, given the stipulations, can only be done randomly by selecting one pair at a time). First, determine the probability, as a reduced fraction, that a large circular loop results, and then, generalize for n blades of grass. 2. Relevant equations 3. The attempt at a solution I have no idea what angle I should attempt this question at. If someone could just decipher this question for me it is much appreciated!
