The estimated probability of a football player scoring a touchdown during a particular game is 26%. If several simulations of the football player playing two games were performed, in what percentage of the simulations would the football player be most likely to get a touchdown in each of the two games?

The probability of the player getting one touchdown in each of two successive games is found from 0.26^2 = 0.0676. If you multiply 0.0676 you will convert it to a percentage of many simulations in which the player gets one touchdown in each of two successive games. Note: You might have to take the nearest answer choice to this percentage.
