Two points are selected randomly on a line of length

Two points are selected randomly on a line of length L so as to be on opposite sides of the midpoint of the line. [In other words, the two points X and Y are independent random variables such that X is uniformly distributed over (0, L/2) and Y is uniformly distributed over (L/2, L).] Find the probability that the distance between the two points is greater than L/3.
