Two shooters aim in same target at same time and then the first shooter shots in 70% of the shooting session, and the second is missing in the 60% of the shooting sesion.

A. The probability to miss the first shooter is: ______________

B. The probability the target to be shot is: _______________

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution

A. I think it is 30% (very easy indeed)

So the first shooter shots 70% (7 of 10) and the second shooter 40% (4 of 10)

B. I think the probability is more than 70%, but what is the correct one?

Thank you.
