Year-end appeal: Please make a donation to the OEIS Foundation to support ongoing development and maintenance of the OEIS. We are now in our 56th year, we are closing in on 350,000 sequences, and we’ve crossed 9,700 citations (which often say “discovered thanks to the OEIS”).

COMMENTS

Choose two numbers at random from the interval [0,1] (using a uniform distribution). This will give three subintervals of lengths a, b and c. What is the probability that there is a triangle with sides a, b and c? Given that a such a triangle exists, what is the probability that it is obtuse? Answer: Probability that there is a triangle is 1/4. Probability for this triangle to be obtuse is = 9 - 12 * log(2) = .68223... .
