# Binomial Distribution

Theoretical or probability distributions are such distributions which are not obtained by actual observations or experiments but are mathematically deduced on certain assumptions. These distributions provide data so that decision maker can take rational decisions. Important theoretical distributions : (1) Binomial Distribution : By James Bernouli (2) Poisson Distribution : By S. D. Poisson (3) Normal Distribution : By Demoivre Hence p =
2 3 and q = 5 5 The probability that the snow would fall on just three days of given week.

Binomial Distribution
This is a discrete distribution. Following assumptions are taken in this distribution (a) The number of trials or `n' is finite and fixed. (b) the experiment must result in either of the two events i.e. there must be only two possible outcomes of the event which are mutually exclusive and exhaustive e.g. tosiing of a coin either head will come or tail will come (c) The probabilities of the success and failure for any trial of the event are contant. (d) All trials must be independent of each other.

Ex. 2. 8 coins are tossed at a time, 256 times. Find the expected frequencies of success (getting a head) for 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7 and 8 successes. 1 Sol. Probability of success or p = 2 and hence q =
1 , n = 8 and N = 256. 2

The probability of success r times in n trials is given by nC pr qn r. r Therefore probability of r successes or p (r) =

## Getting probabilities with the help of Binomial Distribution

Suppose p is the probability of success and q is the probability of failure. Then probabilities of exactly 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, ........ successes are given by successive terms of expansion of (q + p)n. (q + p)n = qn + nC1 qn 1 p + nC2 qn 2 p2 + ........ nCr qn r pr + ........+ pn p(0) = Probability of exactly 0 success = qn p(1) = Probability of exactly one successes = nC1 qn 1 p p(2) = Probability of exactly two successes = nC2 qn 2 p2 p(r) = Probability of exactly r success is given by = nCr qn r pr
