Answer:Probability of one hit in 4 in a row = 42% = 42/100

Probability of 4 hits in a row = 3.1% = 31/1000

Step-by-step explanation:Since all throws are independent events;

If 4 hits in a row

You can make a fraction and square by the amount of hits so if the questions asking 4/4 hits see below or change to the amount of hits you need.

(42/100)^4 = 0.03111696

This is 3.1%

42/100^1 stays 42% = 42/`100

42/100^2 becomes 17.64% = 441/2500

42/100^3 becomes 7.4% = 37/500
