Problem 20

Real numbers $x$ and $y$ are chosen independently and uniformly at random from the interval $(0,1)$. What is the probability that $\lfloor\log_2x\rfloor=\lfloor\log_2y\rfloor$, where $\lfloor r\rfloor$ denotes the greatest integer less than or equal to the real number $r$ ?

$\textbf{(A)}\ \frac{1}{8}\qquad\textbf{(B)}\ \frac{1}{6}\qquad\textbf{(C)}\ \frac{1}{4}\qquad\textbf{(D)}\ \frac{1}{3}\qquad\textbf{(E)}\ \frac{1}{2}$
