# probability – Two random variables are uniformly distributed in \$[0, 1]\$.

Two random variables are uniformly distributed in $$[0, 1]$$.

The question asks whether the smaller of the two numbers is strictly less than
$$frac {1} {4}$$, then what is the probability that the largest is strictly greater than $$frac {3} {4}$$.

I approached the issue while trying to find an appropriate area in the unit square. I have two lines that cut a small square of $$frac {1} {4}$$ length, so I calculated the probability as $$frac {1} {16}$$; but the answer given is $$frac {2} {7}$$ and now I cannot understand where I am wrong.
