[Q] Difference between 5% happening twice and 10%?

Context: I play a game where something can happen when you hit an enemy. For example I hit them and have a 5% chance of lighting them on fire, but I can get an item that makes it so if I don’t get the 5% chance it will roll it again. So it’d be a 5% chance happening twice one after another which isn’t 10% but is it still 5%? I don’t know how probability works very well so I can’t figure this out on my own.
