Please help with this math problem. There is a rectangular piece of land that will be used for landscaping. It is 22x30 ft. It has a 1 ft. wide trench that is on the inside of the rectangle, and runs along the edges (like a frame) throughout the inner perimeter. Also it has a 4 ft. deep excavation that will be used for planting. What is the cubic feet measurement of this rectangle? As a side note the answers on the multiple choice test ranged between 300 to 400. Not any less or more. Please advise with solution. I am stumped. None of my answers come close. I understand the volume of a rectangle is LxWxH.

The probability of the dart hitting the smaller ring is?
A dart is randomly thrown at a circular board on which two concentric rings of radii R and 2R having the same width (width much less than R) are marked. The probability of the dart hitting the smaller ring is:
(1) Twice the probability that it hits the larger ring.
(2) Half of the probability that it hits the larger ring.
(3) Four times the probability that it hits the larger ring.
(4) One-fourth the probability that it hits the larger ring.

Let n points be placed uniformly at random on the boundary of a circle of circumference 1.

These n points divide the circle into n arcs.

Let Z i for 1 i n be the length of these arcs in some arbitrary order, and let X be the number of Z i that are at least 1 n .

What is E [ X ] and V a r [ X ]?

Any hints will be appreciated. Thanks..

(By the way this problem is exercise 8.12 from the book 'Probability and Computing' by Mitzenmacher and Upfal)

Geometric distribution where failure probability is not 1 p
The typical geometric distribution is defined from the success probability p, i.e., a r.v. G~Geometric(p), would have PMF... P [ G = g ] = ( 1 p ) g 1 p
Fischer and Spassky play a chess match in which the first played to win a game wins the match. After 10 successive draws. the match is declared drawn. Each game is won by Fischer with probability 0.4 is won by Spassky with probability 0.3. and is a draw with probability 0.3. independent of previous games.
a) What is the probability that Fischer wins the match?
For part a, the answer is obviously Σ k = 1 10 ( 0.3 ) k 1 ( 0.4 ) 0.571.
But we could also say that r.v. L~CustomGeometric( p = 0.4, q = 0.3)...
P [ L = l ] = q l 1 p = ( 0.3 ) l 1 ( 0.4 )
Where the answer to part a would just come from evaluating the CDF of L, i.e., P [ L 10 ]. Is there a name for this more generic version of the Geometric distribution?

Probability of geometric Brownian motion
I want to solve the following question: Let X(t) be the price of JetCo stock at time t years from the present. Assume that X(t) is a geometric Brownian motion with zero drift and volatility σ = 0.4 / y r. If the current price of JetCo stock is 8.00 USD, what is the probability that the price will be at least 8.40 USD six months from now.
Here is my attempt: Since X(t) is a geometric Brownian motion, log(X(t)) is a regular Brownian motion with zero drift and σ = 0.4 / y r. We want to find the probability that log ( X ( 1 / 2 ) ) log ( 8.40 ) given that log ( X ( 0 ) ) = log ( 8.00 ).
What can I do from here?
