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: Probablility that there is a triangle is 1/4. Probability for this triangle to be obtuse is = 9  12 * log(2) = .68223... .
