Unformatted text preview: the dart landing inside E is proportional to
the area of E Math 30530 (Fall 2012) Continuous models August 31, 2013 2/2 Continuous uniform probability model
1 Experiment: Have a region R in the plane, and select a point
from it at random (e.g. by throwing a dart at the region), with no
bias towards or against any particular part of the region 2 Sample space: Ω = {(x , y )(x , y ) is a point in region R } 3 Probabilities: For any event E ,
Pr(E ) = Area(E )
Area(R ) i.e. the probability of the dart...
