BINOMIAL DISTRIBUTION Characteristics Sample of size n is observed Result of each observation is either success = 1 of failure = 0 The observations are independent so that the probability of success on any observation = p EXCEL BINOMDIST(k,n,p,FALSE) = P(X=k) in a sample of size n with probability p on any single observation BINOMDIST(k,n,p,TRUE) = P(X k) in a sample of size n with probability p on any single observation Examples Example 1 P(X=4) When n = 7, p = .4 0.0279936 0.1306368 0.2612736 0.290304 0.193536 0.0774144 0.0172032 0.0016384 0 0.05 0.1 0.15 0.2 0.25 0.3 0.35 0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 X P(X) P(X=4) =BINOMDIST(4,7,.4,FALSE) .193536
