If x,y,z are selected randomly and independently from the interval [0,1], what is the probability that $x\geq yz$?
The answer is $3/4$, but is there any way to obtain it without using integration?
I thought of using expectation, $E(y)=1/2, E(z)=1/2, E(yz)=1/2*1/2=1/4$, so $P(x\geq yz)=3/4$.
The problem is if I view it the other way round, $E(x)=1/2, P(yz\geq 1/2)$ is not 1/2?
Sincere thanks for any explanation.
