Team A will win the tournament if the games go like this:

 

A and A:                              (0.60) · (0.60)  =  .....

A and B and A:       (0.60) · (0.40) · (0.60)  =  .....

B and A and A:       (0.40) · (0.60) · (0.60)  =  ..... 

 

Find each of the individual probabilities and add those values together  .....
