4 Binomial Distribution (a discrete distribution) Model characteristics: Dichotomous outcomes Two possible outcomes One outcome can occur Constant probability of “success” Independence

5 Binomial Distribution Mathematical model: • P B (R= r | n, p) = [ n! / r! (n - r)! ] p r (1-p) n-r B subscript = binomial probability R = binomial random variable r = number of successful outcomes n = number of events or trials p = probability of successful outcome E (R) = = np Var (R) = = np(1- p) μ σ 2

6 Binomial Distribution Probability mass function notation: f (x) = ( ) p x q n-x X = binomial random variable x = number of successful outcomes n = number of events or trials p = probability of a successful outcome q = 1 – p = probability of an unsuccessful outcome E (X) = µ = np V (X) = σ 2 = µq n x

7 Binomial Distribution Cumulative distribution function: Probability of k or fewer “successful” outcomes F (x k) = ∑ ( ) p x q n-x k X = 0 n x

8 Binomial Distribution Frequent application situations: Quality control Reliability Survey sampling Approximation by other models: Poisson: p → 0 and n → ∞ Normal: p 0.5 and np > 5, OR p > 0.5 and nq > 5

9 Binomial Distribution Example application: Items are manufactured in large lots, from each of which twenty units are selected at random. The lot is accepted if the sample contains three or fewer defectives. If the production process yields, on the average, ten percent defectives, what is the probability of lot acceptance?
