What is the probability that the pieces can be put together to form a triangle?

If you can answer this at this point, please do.

If not, perhaps this will help: here are several methods to break the stick into the three random length pieces:

- I select, independently, and at random, two points from the points that range uniformly along the stick, then break the stick at these two points.
- I select one point, independently, and at random (again uniformly), and break the stick at this point. I then randomly (with even chances) select one of the two sticks and randomly select a point (again uniformly) along that stick, and break it at that point.
- I select one point, independently, and at random (again uniformly), and break the stick at this point. I then select the
**larger**stick, and randomly select a point (again uniformly) along that stick, and break it at that point.
