Default ASM Manual Question - joint probability

Can someone please explain why my approach does not work? Their solution is the second picture. I am having a hard time figuring out what their (1-e^.2e^-.03t) represents.

You left out the previous page, which answers your question. Because the force of mortality for x is defined piecewise, it is not constant for all x.

e^.2e^-.03t = tpx, for t>10.
So 1-e^.2e^-.03t = tqx for t>10.

Your picture is kind of hard to see, so I can't compare it to your work.
