On a game show, darts are thrown at a circular target. It's radius = 10 meters. Within the target is another circular region called the red zone. If a dart is thrown and hits the red zone, the player gets 25 bonus points. The radius of the red zone = 5 meters. If every dart thrown hits the target at a random point, what is the probability that a dart hits the red zone?

2. Relevant equations

?

3. The attempt at a solution

My answer is 1/2 or a 50% chance of hitting the red zone.

The inner circle takes up half the space of the bigger one.
