So this problem. We want to find the probability that neither Paul nor Albert gets a hit their first time at bat. So if Albert's percentage is point for or four out of 10 and Paul's is 0.3 or three out of 10 I want to find the probably that neither of them get a bat. So we actually take these and we subtract them from 100 that will give us six out of 10 and that will give us seven out of 10. So these are the percentages that Albert will miss. His first time is bad, and this is the percentage that Paul will miss the first time that we want to find the probability of something not happening. It's one minus the probability of it happening. So we want to take these and we want to multiply these together and we should end up with 42 over 100 simplifies down 2.42 and in order to turn into a fraction we want multiplied by 100 that will give us 42%. So that is the percentage that neither of the boys get their hit their first time. I'm bad
