Your question is too vague. Give an example.

Why square root specifically? Do you think it has special significance because of the symbol $\sqrt{}$?

Well, you can beat an egg but ya can't beet a root! But in all seriousness your question still isn't clear. You can google search 'probability with roots'.

I not asking for only done question. I just want a good formulated question, that use of root in the question. I think if somebody answer on questions in the forum, he can also create a question with given data.

Given a set of points on a cartesian coordinate system of x,y, the distance from origin to any point is sqrt(x^2 + y^2). What radius of distance from origin will include 50% of randomly distributed new points, where x and y range from 0..k? Last edited by AngleWyrm2; March 2nd, 2018 at 09:09 AM.
