I need to be walked through the steps, I'm not very good at word problems.
There are two events (foul shots), A and B. The probability of A then B is\[P (A\text{ then } B) = P(A) \times P(B)\]Don't forget, the probabilities need to be expressed as decimals before doing any calculations with them.
So using that equation I would get my answer?

Yes. Show me what you get.
I'm not sure what to plug in to what
Event A is missing the first foul shot. What's P(A)?
40?
Express as a decimal.
.40
?
Right. Event B is missing the second foul shot. What's P(B) expressed as a decimal?
.05
Right. So the event of Event A happening then Event B happening is P(A) x P(B). What do you get. Express your final answer as a percent.
I'm not sure if i'm right, but 2 percent?
Correct. Well done! It's a small percentage because, even if the first shot is missed, the second shot is almost never missed. Make sense?
Yes! Thank you. Do you mind helping me with another one? If not that'll be fine.
OK. Delete this question and post your other one.
