Stepbystep explanation:
The diameter equals the side length of the outer square. The radius of the circle is √2. The diameter of the circle would be
2 × radius = 2 × √2 = 2√2
The area of a square is expressed as length^2. This means that the area of the outer square would be
( 2√2)^2 = 4×2 = 8
The area of the circle is expressed as πr^2. Therefore, the area of the circle would be
π×√2^2 = 2π = 2×3.14 = 6.28
Looking at the inner square, to find the length of the base, we would apply Pythagoras theorem.
√2^2 = base^2 + 1^2
2 = base^2 + 1
base^2 = 2 1 = 1
base = √1
Area of the inner square would be
√1^2 = 1
Total shaded area would be
6.28  1 = 5.28
The probability that the dart will land on the shaded area is
5.28/8 = 0.66
