Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

Given that (s)he is a 0.390 hitter means that his/her probability of hitting is 0.39 or 39%. the complimentary event is failing to hit(miss). Given that there are only two events, hit or miss, the probability of a miss(not hitting) is given by 1-0.39 = 0.61 or 61%

Please let me know if you need any clarification. I'm always happy to answer your questions.

Tutor went the extra mile to help me with this essay. Citations were a bit shaky but I appreciated how well he handled APA styles and how ok he was to change them even though I didnt specify. Got a B+ which is believable and acceptable.
