I have a probability question I could use some help with.

If a quarterback completes 60% of his passes and a wide receiver catches 75% of the passes thrown his way, what percentage of passes thrown by that quarterback to that wide receiver will be caught, assuming the league average completion rate is 55%? Is there a formula to calculate this or at least come up with an estimate? Thanks.

The question is too vague, If the quarterback and the receiver are on the same team and always playing together, 75% will be caught. The other numbers don't matter.
