Can someone please explain this to me I'm having a hard time solving it I don't get it. Thanks

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.

If the probability of making 1 free throw is 91%, the probability of making 5 out of 5 is (91%)^5, or 62.4%
