= probability that he gets 7 or 8 or 9 or 10

= probability he gets 7 and misses 3 or  probability he throws  8 and misses 2 or probability he throws  9 and misses 1 or probability he gets all 10

= 64%^7 *36%^3 + 64%^8 *36%^2+64%^9 *36% +0.64^10

= 0.002052 +0.003648+ 0.006485 +0.01153

=0.02377

=2.377% probability
