a. what is the distribution
b. probability player A makes all 10
c.probabiliity makes at least 8

You can find the probabilities by using a binomial probability table or do these problems by hand using the following:
P(x) = (nCx)(p^x)[q^(nx)]
n = 10
p = .80
q = 1  p
I'll give you some hints:
b. Find P(10).
c. Find P(8), P(9), and P(10), then add together for total probability.
d. I'll let you determine this one.
