Binomial DistributionIn Statistics and Probability theory, the binomial distribution gives the discrete probabilitydistribution, P
(n|N) for obtaining exactly
successes out of
trails (where the result of eachBernoulli trail is true with probability
and false with probability
= 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 .
