Is there any special name in math for probability dealing with polygons?

I mean questions like: Three vertices are chosen from the seven vertices of a regular 7-sided polygon. What is the probability that they form the vertices of an isosceles triangle?

Where can I get these types of probability problems for practice?

The type is not Geometric Probability, which calculates probability in terms of length / area / volume.

While it could be considered as "geometric probability" where we count the number of points in which a condition is satisfied, that is not standard usage. – Calvin Lin Staff · 4 years ago
