Unformatted text preview: 16 The Bernoulli Tfial and Bernoulli Distribution u Consider an experiment with two distinct outcomes. Often these are though of as “Pass” or “Fail” experiments. 7 Coin toss: either heads or tails * Reliability: pass or fail * Package Routing: left or right F- 7‘ Binary Data: 0’s or 1’s 0 Let X be a binary random variable which takes on one of two distinct. outcomes. Let X : 1 if the outcomes is a “success” and X 2 0 if the outcomes is a =failure” (“sum-eels” and “failure” defined to suit your problem). X is a Bernoulli ramiom variable with probability of success p, X N Beflp).
