Unformatted text preview: To Fnd the probability P ( Y ≤ y ), use the sum command to add up all p ( y ) values for y between and including 0 and y . sum(dbinom(0:y,n,p)) To Fnd the probability P ( y 1 ≤ Y ≤ y 2 ), use the sum command to add up all p ( y ) values for y between and including y 1 and y 2 . sum(dbinom(y1:y2,n,p)) To Fnd the probability P ( Y ≥ y ), use the sum command to add up all p ( y ) values for y between and including y and n 1 sum(dbinom(y:n,n,p)) Finally, to get a list of all p ( y ) values for a particular binomial random variable Y , use the dbinom command to list all p ( y ) for values of y between and including 0 and n . dbinom(0:n,n,p) • Generating observed values. You can also use R to generate observed values from a binomial distribution with n and p . The command is rbinom(numobs, n,p) where numobs is the number of observed values you would like to generate. 2...
