Binomial example… l In this example l P( X = 5) is a binomial probability l P( X ≤ 1) is a cumulative binomial probability l P( X > 1) is called a survivor probability l Even with counting techniques, these probabilities can be cumbersome to evaluate l So, values of binomial probabilities have also been tabulated l Tables of individual probabilities & for cumulative probabilities 11

Binomial tables l For P( X =5) when n =10, p =0.2 l Need column labelled p =0.2 in block of values for n=10 l Now consider row labelled k =5  0.0264 as before l Similarly P( X ≤ 1) could be verified from table of individual probabilities by summing as before l Or directly from table of cumulative probabilities 12

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
