Binomial(p,n)

Binomial Equations

Crystal Ball parameter restrictions

A Binomial(p,n) distribution returns discrete values between 0 and n. Examples of the Binomial distribution are shown below: ### Uses

The Binomial distribution models the number of successes from n independent trials where there is a probability p of success in each trial (as explained in the section on the Binomial process).

The binomial distribution has an enormous number of uses. Beyond simple binomial processes, many other stochastic processes can be usefully reduced to a binomial process to resolve problems. For example:

...

Blood samples that have zero, or >0 antibodies;

Approximation to a hypergeometric distribution

...

The following links lead to just some of the examples and models in ModelAssist that use the binomial distribution:
