== == == == That depends on many things, and the first is if it is high school, college, or NBA Basketball. In college and high school you get one free throw for every foul until you reach 10 fouls, where you get 2 from then on. In the NBA, you get two free throws for every shooting foul that the other team has committed.

For High School basketball you either get 1 or 2. It depends on how many fouls the other team already has. You usually shoot one and one or two. One and one: if you miss the first one you don't get another one. If you make it you shoot again. 2: you shoot both whether you miss or not

You can score up to three points at the line. If you're fouled at the three-point line you go to the line for three. But if you're fouled at the three-point line and score while being fouled, they give you three points and you go to the line for one more making a "four-point play".

If you get fowled on the way up to making the shot, but miss, you get 2 shots. If you get fowled around the basket, while on the offensive, you get a 1 and 1 (you make the first, you get to try for a second)
