To determine "eitheror" probabilities, you add the probabilities of the individual events. Since the probabilities of each event are the same, you could multiply by 5.
I hope this helps. Thanks for asking.

For eitheror probability, you add the probabilities of the individual events. Since all the probabilities are the same, you can just multiply the probaiblity by 5.
