A football quarterback has 2 more chances to throw a touchdown before his team is forced to punt the ball. He misses the receiver on the first throw 30% of the time. When his first throw is incomplete, he misses the receiver on the second throw 10% of the time. What is the probability of not throwing the ball to a receiver on either throw?

    It also means it is 3/10. And 10% or 1/10 of 3/10 is 1/30
