2.b) What is the probability that Toronto wins the series in four games? c) What is the probability that the series goes to a fifth game?’ 3. i) Binomial Distribution The number of trials n is fixed. Each trial is independent. Each trial represents one of two outcomes (“success”/”failure”). The probability of “success” p is the same for each outcome. The variables of significance are the probabilities of different numbers of successes. Geometric Distribution The number of trials n is not fixed. Each trial is independent. Each trial represents one of two outcomes (“success” or “failure”).

Geometric Distribution The probability distribution of the number of trials prior to the first success in a stochastic (involving chance) process consisting of a fixed number of trials that have two outcomes is modeled by the following formula: Where: p is the probability of success on each trial
