Suppose a basketball player is an excellent free throw shooter and makes 91% of his free throws (i.e.,he has a 91% free chance of making a single free throw). Assume that free throw shots are independent of one another. Suppose this player shoots five free throws. Find the probability that he makes all five throw.
