Thank you so much!!

Nicky is a 60% free-throw shooter in a two-shot free-throw situation. Is she likely to score 0 points, 1 point, or 2 points?

can you please explain to me how to get the answer.

Assuming each shot is an independent event..

Pr(0)=.4*.4
Pr (1)=2*.6*.4
Pr (2)= .6*.6

Those are the probablities. The reason for the 2 in the second one is there is two ways to score one point, make it on the first, or make it on the second. She is most likely to score one point.
