If P(knee pain) = 0.4, then P(NO knee pain) = 0.6

P(Fred ends walk at end of Day 3) = P(no knee pain on Day 1 AND no knee pain on Day 2 AND knee pain on Day 3)
= P(NO knee pain on Day 1) x P(NO knee pain on Day 2) x P(knee pain on Day 3)
= 0.6 x 0.6 x 0.4
= 0.144

P(NO knee pain on Day 1) x P(NO knee pain on Day 2) x P(knee pain on Day 3)
0.6 x 0.6 x 0.4 = 0.144
