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?

If given two percentages you can treat them as probabilities. This means that 30 percent becomes p=.3 and 10 percent becomes p=.1 If given two probabilities, you can calculate the probability of both occurring by multiplying them. This means .3*.1=.03 therefore the probability of both occurring is p=.03
