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?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Let A be the event he misses on the first throw. P(A) = 0.3 Let B be the event he misses on the second throw. Then P(BA) = 0.1 \[\large P(A\cap B)=P(A)\times P(BA)=0.3\times0.1=0.03\]
