probability that the first seven tries are misses: (0.8)^7
probability that the eighth one hits: 0.2
probability that the first seven tries are misses and the 8th one is a hit: P = (0.8)^7*(0.2)
so the probability would be 0.04194304? @Vocaloid
yes, but do you understand my math? do you understand how I got those numbers?
