Binomial Distribution

Definition
The binomial distribution describes a discrete probability distribution.
Graphic Representation
Applications P is the probability, that event E occurs exactly x times in a population of n events. A binomial distribution is encountered when drawing proportions of a Bernoulli process.
Mean E(X) = np
Variance VAR(X) = np(1-p)
Simulation The program Discrete Distributions calculates the probability density functions of the binomial, the hypergeometric, and Poisson distribution. After specifying the appropriate parameters both the probability density and the cumulative distribution is calculated and displayed.
