When he enters a large town, the probability that he does not find the correct exit road is 0.25. He starts on a journey that passes through two small towns followed by one large town. Draw a tree diagram to represent this info and use it to find the probability that
a)he reaches th second small town and leaves it on the correct road

town 1
right .8 wrong .2 (lost)
town 2
right .8 wrong .2 (lost)
city
right .75 wrong .25 (lost)

for part a
branches = right .8 * right .8 so .64

for part b
branches = right .8 * right .8 * wrong .25 so .64/4 = .16
