Geometric Probability

The probability of locating a random point in a particular region as a part of a whole is called geometric probability. For example, finding a measure for possibility of striking a meteor a land is geometric probability. Since in this observation, the ratio of the area of the lands to the entire area of the earth is considered as a measure for probability. In other words, in geometric probability, we always deal with the ratio of lengths, areas, or volumes.
