Question

In a national basketball​ association, the top​ free-throw shooters usually have probability of about 0.90 of making any given free throw. Complete parts​ (a) through​ (c).Find the probability that the player made all 11 free throws and the probability that he made 10 free throws.
I set this up like this: 11/11x(.90)to the 11th power, x(1-.90)to the 0 power, is that correct?
