A point (x,y) is randomly selected such that 0 <= x <= 3 and 0 <= y <= 6. What is the probability that x + y <= 5? Express your answer as a common fraction.

The blue area represents the successes (areas where the sum of x and y is less than or equal to 5)

 

The big rectangle represents all the possibilities. 


So, the probability is \(\text{area of blue shaded region} \over \text{area of total black rectangle}\)

 

Can you take it from here?
