1 Chapter 6 : 6.2 and 6.3 Binomial Probability There are a fixed number of trials ( n ) all of which are independent and repeated under identical conditions Each trial has only two outcomes: SUCCESS and FAILURE For each trial the probability of success ( p ) is the same. Since there are only two outcomes, the probability of failure is q = 1 - p The problem is essentially to find the probability of r successes out of n trials to 0:binompdf( Syntax: ( ) ( ) exactly successes binompdf , , out of trials r n p r P n P X r = = = Example: Daniel Gibson makes 42% of his three point shots. Find the probability that he makes 4 out of 5 three point shots.
