Binomial Probability Distrubtions
A binomial probability distribution results from a procedure that meets all the following
requirements: The procedure has a fixed number of trials, the trials must be
independent, each trial must have all outcomes classif
Definitions:
An event is any collection of results or outcomes of a procedure. A simple event is an
outcome or an event that cannot be further broken down into simpler components. The
sample space for a procedure consists of all possible simple events. Th
Random Variables:
A random variable is a variable that has a single numerical value, determined by
chance, for each outcome of a procedure. A probability distribution is a description that
gives the probability for each value of the random variable. It is
