Hello student,
If the 7th key is correct, the first six are incorrect.
. .(and we don't care about the last three.)

So, we want:.no - no - no - no - no - no - yes.

The probability is:.\frac{9}{10}\cdot\frac{8}{9}\cdot\frac{7}{8}\cdot \frac{6}{7}\cdot\frac{5}{6}\cdot \frac{1}{5}

. .which reduces to:.\frac{\rlap{/}9}{10}\cdot\frac{\rlap{/}8}{\rlap{/}9}\cdot\frac{\rlap{/}7}{\rlap{/}8}\cdot \frac{\rlap{/}6}{\rlap{/}7}\cdot\frac{\rlap{/}5}{\rlap{/}6}\cdot \frac{1}{\rlap{/}5} \;=\;\frac{1}{10}
Thanks and Regards
