Problem 1 of 3

 

Mohammed, Muuxi and Abdul each shoot an arrow at a target once. The probabilities that they each hit the target are 0.1, 0.2 and 0.3 respectively.

 

(a) What is the probability that all three will miss the target?

 

(b) Shane wanted to calculate the probability that exactly two of the people hit the target. Here is his calculation:

 

(0.1)(0.2)(0.7) = 0.014

 

Explain what is wrong with his calculation and determine the correct probability.
