Unformatted text preview: Binomial Experiment Formula Given a binomial experiment with n independent repeated trials, p is the probability of success in a single trial, q = 1 p is the probability of failure in a single trial, r is the number of successes . Then the probability of r successes in n trials is given by the formula: P(r successes in n trials) = ( ) r n r q p r n, C Probability Distribution and Expected Value for a Binomial Experiment The probability distribution for a binomial experiment is called a binomial probability distribution or a binomial distribution The distribution or a binomial distribution . The expected value of a binomial experiment can be found using the formula: E(X) = np ....
