Sketch square ABCD on your paper, then randomly choose a point on $\overline{AB}$ and label it X. Draw $\overline{XC}$ and $\overline{XD}$ to form ΔXCD. If a dart is thrown and lands inside the square, what is the probability that it landed inside ΔXCD? Does it matter where you place X on $\overline{AB}$? 5-122 HW eTool (Desmos). Homework Help ✎

How does the area of ΔXCD compare to the area of the square? How do the base and height of the triangle
change as the position of x changes?
