I know how to use complement to get the answer. Why does P(Not face)* P(Not face) produce a different and wrong answer?

*both*have to be face cards, then the probability of losing will include either the probability of*one*or*both*not being a face card.

P(face) * P(not face) + P(not face) * P(not face) = ?

Went brain dead.
