In a homicide case, 7 different witnesses picked the same man from a lineup. The line up contained 5 men. If the identification were made by random guesses, find the probability that all 7 witnesses would pick the same person.

Hint: the last 6 witnesses each have probability 1/5 of matching 1st witness.
