Sometimes, probability questions can be interpreted geometrically, from simple examples like throwing darts to surprising applications like catching the bus!

The dartboard above is made up of three concentric circles with radii \(1, 3,\) and \(5.\) Assuming that a dart thrown will land randomly on the dartboard, what is the probability that it lands in the green region?

A point \((a,b)\) is randomly selected within the triangular region enclosed by the graphs of \( 3y + 2x = 6 \), \( x = 0 \) and \( y = 0 \). What is the probability that \( b > a \) ?

Dave and Kathy both arrive at Pizza Palace at two random times between 10:00 p.m. and midnight. They agree to wait exactly 15 minutes for each other to arrive before leaving. What is the probability that Dave and Kathy see each other?

If the probability is \( \frac ab\) for coprime positive integers, give the answer as \(a+b\).
