## anonymous one year ago In the past, Fred has made four out of every five free throws in basketball that he has attempted. What is the probability that Fred will make the next two free throws he attempts?

To find probability of something (in this case successful free throws), take the number of times that has happened and divide it by the number of chances it had to happen.

The probability of making one throw is 4/5 = 0.8. The probability of making the next two free throws is given by $\large P(making\ 2\ successive\ throws)=0.8\times0.8 = you\ can\ calculate$
