The probability that he does not get a hit is .75 (1-.25=.75)

So the probability that he does not get a hit in his next 3 at bats is the Probability that he does not get a hit on the first times Probability that he does not get a hit on the second times Probability that he does not get a hit on the third

$\displaystyle

=.75^3
