A stick has a length of 5 units. The stick is then broken at two points, chosen at random. What is the probability that all three resulting pieces are shorter than $3$ units?

This question has been done to death!

 

Let the pieces be   x,  y-x  and  5-y       (that adds up to 5)

 

Now draw a contour probability map.
