You are given a 100*50 snooker table (felt area) and two balls of diameter 1. One ball is placed in the center of the table and the other ball is randomly positioned. What is the probability that I will be able to shoot this second ball directly into the top left pocket without touching the central ball? (Assume pocket has radius 1)
(In reply to re(2): approximate solution -- poor drawing, hope it helps
Thanks for the drawing.
It is about what I thought: how can I pot that ball when my randomly placed ball is in the upper half of the pool table?
