Chessboard Coin (Posted on 2004-10-08) Difficulty: 2 of 5
I've a chessboard of side 80cm.

You've a coin of diameter 2cm, and you throw it on to the chessboard. The center of the coin falls somewhere on the chessboard.

What is the likelihood that the coin is completely within a white square?

The coin does not landing standing on edge because it's center is on the board (not above it).
