Suppose a basketball player is an excellent free throw shooter and makes 91% of his free throws (i.e., he has a 91% 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 throws. A).0 B).0.376 C).0.624 D).1
The probability of all events occurring is found by multiplying the values of the individual events.
Probability = .91^5 = ?
