No homework help, dummy.

And the answer is too obvious for me to even want to help you.

Dude tries to get attitude-y and is so off.

damn, i feel like this problem is so easy but i second guess my answer every time i tell myself it has to be 20%

however, i am 100% positive the answer isnt 100%

20% COH X 5 AB=100% - 70% COO = 30% + (10% COW X 5 AB) = 80% - 10x5 AB= 30%

#1 20% per at bat multiplied by 5 at bats means he will likeley get a hit. Subtract the 70% K rate you get back to 30%. Of course a walk is as good as a K in this scenario so subtract that 50% you get -20. Add 50 to get 30%

j/k. Good luck OP

Ok, I'm only going to say this once. The likelihood of him getting a hit doesn't increase the more at bats he has.Originally Posted byShaunHillFTW49

Using the heads/tails analogy, would I be more likely to get a tails after 10 consecutive heads? NO!

Therefore, the answer is 20%.

I would help you, but you're trying to do homework on a Saturday night, so you're obviously a lame.
