Monday Probability 13: Darts

My probability of hitting a dart in the central circle is uniformly distributed between 0.4 to 0.6. Let’s say I take the first shot and hit it inside the circle. What is the chance that my next hit goes inside the circle too?

Answer: 38/75

  1. Aren't they independent events?

  2. The issue here is that probability itself is a random variable here.
