# Slippery Elumis a baseball pitcher who uses three pitches, 60% fastball, 25% curveballs and the rest spitballs. Slippery is pretty accurate with his fastball(about 70% are strikes), less accurate with his curveball(50% strikes), and very wide with his spitball(only 30% strikes). Slippery ends one game with a strike on the last pitch he throws. What is the probability that pitch was a curveball?

probability of curev ball P(C) = 0.25

probability of spit ball P(S) = 0.15
