2020-23 The area of a random polygon

Suppose we choose a point on the unit circle in the plane at random with the uniform probability measure on the circle. When we choose n points in that way, what is the probability of the n-gon obtained as the convex hull of the chosen points has the area bigger than \( \pi/2 \) in terms of n?
