 Binomial DistributionIn Statistics and Probability theory, the binomial distribution gives the discrete probabilitydistribution, P
P
(n|N) for obtaining exactly
n
successes out of 
N
trails (where the result of eachBernoulli trail is true with probability
 p
and false with probability
q
= 1-p). In simple terms thebinomial distribution describes the no. of times that a particular event will occur in sequence of observations. The event might be in binary form, i.e. it may or may not occur. It is used whenthe researcher wants to find out the occurrence of an even but not in the intensity ormagnitude of the event. Say for ex: if the researcher wants to calculate the probability of raining. He will concentrate on rain but not on the damages that occur due to the rain.The binomial distribution is therefore given bywhere is a binomial coefficient. The above plot shows the distribution of successes out of trials with .
 
 
Example
: Toss a coin for 10 times. What is the probability of getting exactly 8 heads.Step 1: Here,Number of trials n = 110Number of success r = 8 (since we define getting a head as success)Probability of success on any single trial p = 0.5Step 2: To Calculate
n
C
r
formula is used.
n
C
r
= ( n! / (n-r)! ) / r!= ( 10! / (10-8)! ) / 8!= ( 10! / 2! ) / 8!= ( 3628800 / 2 ) /= ( 1814400 / 40320 )= 45Step 3: Find p
r
.p
r
= 0.5
8
 = 0.00390625Step 4: To Find (1-p)
n-r
Calculate 1-p and n-r.1-p = 1-0.5 = 0.5n-r = 10-8 = 2Step 5: Find (1-p)
