In the National Basketball Association, the top free throw shooters usually have probability of about 0.90 of making any given free throw.
a. During a game, one such player (Dolph Schayes) shot 10 free throws. Let X = number of free throws made. What must you assume in order for X to have a binomial distribution? (Studies have shown that such assumptions are well satisfied for this sport.)
b. Specify the values of n and p for the binomial distribution of X in part a.
c. Find the probability that he made (i) all 10 free throws and (ii) 9 free throws.
