Coin probability...
A coin with radius of $\farc{1}{4}$ is thrown on plane. Find the probability $p$ so that the coin will cover a point on (Cartesian plane); $(x,y)$ where $x$ and $y$ are integers.

Thank you!

It seems to follow an Uniform distribution having probability = (1/area of that circle), ie., $\frac{1}{14*14*\pi}$
