This is the concept of the probability and statistics. To get the probability of hitting the inner circle we proceed as follows;
P(inner square)=[area of inner circle]/[area of outer square]
area of inner square will be:
Area=length*width
Area=4*4=16 m^2
Area of outer square:
Area=7*7=49 m^2
thus;
P(hitting inner square)=16/49=0.3265=32.65%
