Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0binominal distribution is used when a system gives equal chance of something to happen right?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Do you know the formula to binominal distribution?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0not necessarily. For example, if I have a dice, and i throw that dice say 500 time, then I measure the probability to get the number 3, then the requested probability is: 1/6, whereas the probability to get another number is 5/6

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so total probability to get a 3 say 200 times, is: \[\Large P\left( 3 \right) = \left( {\begin{array}{*{20}{c}} {500} \\ {200} \end{array}} \right){\left( {\frac{1}{6}} \right)^{200}}{\left( {\frac{5}{6}} \right)^{300}}\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0The formula provided explains what happens when one rolls a dice for 300 times where he gets a 3?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0that formula, gives us the probability to get the number 3, 200 times, if I throw my dice 500 times

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0oh ok. So the formula in itself is already justified.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0binomial  we have N independent trials with success rate p, and we're interested in the number of successes k out of these N trials; equivalently, we have some objects, and p is the proportion of objects that are special, and we're interested in the number of special objects k we get after picking N such objects if we sample objects *with replacement* (so the proportion p is constant) geometric  we have N independent trials with success rate p, and we're interested in the number of trials k we need to get *one* success hypergeometric  we have T objects, and M of them are special, and we're interested in the number of special objects k we get after picking n such objects if we sample *without replacement* (so the proportion changes from M/T with each object we pick)
