    The probability is 0.17

    Step-by-step explanation:

    In this question, we are asked to calculate the probability that Sheryl makes a free throw and Tess not making a free throw

    To answer this question, we must remember that the probability of an event happening and that same event not happening is 1. This will guide us to answer this question.

    The probability of Sheryl making a free throw is 0.25

    The probability of Tess making a free throw is 0.32, his probability of not making a free throw will be 1-0.32 = 0.68

    Now we calculate the probability asked in the question as;

    Probability of Sheryl making a free throw * probability of Tess not making a free throw

    = 0.25 * 0.68 = 0.17
