Help hard probability

 

A stick is broken at two points, at random.  If the length of the stick is 6, then what is the probability that all three resulting pieces are shorter than 3 units?

Hint:

Use  probability contour mapping

 

Let the piece be    x, y-x and  6-y     units ong ... They add up to 6
