A stick has a length of  units. The stick is then broken at two points, chosen at random. What is the probability that all three resulting pieces are shorter than  units?

Uhm, it has not.  It blanked out a number.  It should be, what is the probability that all three resulting pieces are shorter than 3 units?  All of the other ones are not for 3 units.  THis one is different.
