Page1/1            How can the probability be zero? 2015-10-13 From anagha:Hi, thank you for answering (beforehand) The other day I was just thinking of circles and I came across this peculiar thing. Most of'em say that there are infinite number of points on the circumference. and, if it is true, if we spin the radius, the probability that it will point a a particular point is 1/infinity, right? It didn't make any sense to me and so, I thought there might be an explanation or something of the kind...?Answered by Harley Weston.
