I find this question poorly worded. When it says "in a circle" does it mean on the disk bounded by the circle? Or does it mean a point in the set of points in the actual circle?

For example $\displaystyle (0.5,0.5)$ is interior to $\displaystyle x^2+y^2=1$ but it is not in the set of points that makeup the circle. - Dec 14th 2012, 06:07 PMhyungju2012Re: What is the probability that P1 is closer to Q than P2 ?
I have clarified the problem description according to the comment form Plato.

I appreciate Plato for the helpful comment.
