## anonymous one year ago The next three batters on a baseball team have hit percentages of 0.325, 0.250, and 0.275, respectively. What is the probability that the first and third batters will both get a hit, while the second batter does not?

multiply

2. anonymous

actually first compute the probability that the second batter does not get a hit, which is $$1-.25$$ then multiply

I'll add that the possible answers are A. 0.067 B. 0.201 C. 0.217 D. 0.603

4. anonymous

and ill try that

$$1-.25=.75$$ multiply $0.325\times 0.75\times 0.275$ it should be a pretty small number
