experiments and some associated notation; so we cover those topics first.

Binomial Experiment

A binomial experiment (also known as a Bernoulli trial) is a statistical experiment that has the

following properties:

Each trial can result in just two possible outcomes. We call one of these outcomes a success

and the other, a failure.

The probability of success, denoted by P, is the same on every trial.

The trials are independent; that is, the outcome on one trial does not affect the outcome on

other trials.

Consider the following statistical experiment. You flip a coin 2 times and count the number of times

the coin lands on heads. This is a binomial experiment because:

Each trial can result in just two possible outcomes - heads or tails.

The probability of success is constant - 0.5 on every trial.

The trials are independent; that is, getting heads on one trial does not affect whether we get

heads on other trials.

Notation

n: The number of trials in the binomial experiment.

P: The probability of success on an individual trial.

Q: The probability of failure on an individual trial. (This is equal to 1 - P.)

b(x; n, P): Binomial probability - the probability that an n-trial binomial experiment results in

exactly x successes, when the probability of success on an individual trial is P.

n Cr: The number of combinations of n things, taken r at a time.

Binomial Distribution

experiment. The probability distribution of a binomial random variable is called a binomial

distribution (also known as a Bernoulli distribution).

Suppose we flip a coin two times and count the number of heads (successes). The binomial random

variable is the number of heads, which can take on values of 0, 1, or 2. The binomial distribution is

presented below.

0 0.25

1 0.50

2 0.25

The variance (σ2x) is n * P * ( 1 - P ).

The standard deviation (σx) is sqrt[ n * P * ( 1 - P ) ].

Binomial Probability

The binomial probability refers to the probability that a binomial experiment results in exactly x

successes. For example, in the above table, we see that the binomial probability of getting exactly one

head in two coin flips is 0.50.

Given x, n, and P, we can compute the binomial probability based on the following formula:

Binomial Formula. Suppose a binomial experiment consists of n trials and results in x successes. If the

probability of success on an individual trial is P, then the binomial probability is:

Binomial Calculator

As you may have noticed, the binomial formula requires many time-consuming computations. The

Binomial Calculator can do this work for you - quickly, easily, and error-free. Use the Binomial

Calculator to compute binomial probabilities and cumulative binomial probabilities. The calculator is

free. It can be found under the Stat Tables tab, which appears in the header of every Stat Trek web

page.

Binomial Calculator

Example 1

Solution: To solve this problem, we compute 46 individual probabilities, using the binomial formula.

The sum of all these probabilities is the answer we seek. Thus,

b(x < 45; 100, 0.5) = b(x = 0; 100, 0.5) + b(x = 1; 100, 0.5) + . . . + b(x = 45; 100, 0.5)

b(x < 45; 100, 0.5) = 0.184

Example 2

The probability that a student is accepted to a prestigeous college is 0.3. If 5 students from the same

school apply, what is the probability that at most 2 are accepted?

Solution: To solve this problem, we compute 3 individual probabilities, using the binomial formula. The

sum of all these probabilities is the answer we seek. Thus,

b(x < 2; 5, 0.3) = 0.1681 + 0.3601 + 0.3087

b(x < 2; 5, 0.3) = 0.8369
