# Binomial distribution

In the discussion forum for this week, you will create a scenario that requires the use of a binomial distribution. Before posting your problem, please review the criteria for a binomial distributions by reviewing Week 5 Binomial distribution and Binomial Distribution in Excel Week 5.

Instructions:

• For your post you will make up a problem that uses binomial distribution similar to the example below. Try to have 3 scenarios. You do not need to solve your own problem.
• If you can, try a probability different from .5. In your problem, make sure that the probability stays the same for each trial!
• You will answer problems from classmates for your responses. Copy the question and your Excel formulas into your forum posts so your professor and classmates can check your work. Then write a brief summary of the results after the problem you copied in your post.

_______________________________________________________________

Example initial post:

For this example, assume that a family has 8 children, and the probability that any one child is a boy is .5.

a) Find the probability that the family has exactly 5 boys.

b) Find the probability that the family has more than 5 boys.

c) Find the probability that the family has at most 5 boys.

____________________________________________________________________________________

For your response posts, here is how to solve these problems in Excel.

a) Find the probability that the family has exactly 5 boys.

Type into an Excel cell

=binom.dist(5,8,.5,False)

You should get .21875

b) Find the probability that the family has at most 5 boys.

Type into an Excel cell

=binom.dist(5,8,.5,True)

c) Find the probability that the family has more than 5 boys.

Type into an Excel cell:

=1-binom.dist(5,8,.5,True)

Notice that this answer is just 1 minus the answer from part b.  Then, describe what these results mean by summarizing the results.

• ### Is there a possibility of plagiarism in my completed order?

We complete each paper from scratch, and in order to make you feel safe regarding its authenticity, we check our content for plagiarism before its delivery. To do that, we use our in-house software, which can find not only copy-pasted fragments, but even paraphrased pieces of text. Unlike popular plagiarism-detection systems, which are used by most universities (e.g. Turnitin.com), we do not report to any public databases—therefore, such checking is safe.

We provide a plagiarism-free guarantee that ensures your paper is always checked for its uniqueness. Please note that it is possible for a writing company to guarantee an absence of plagiarism against open Internet sources and a number of certain databases, but there is no technology (except for turnitin.com itself) that could guarantee no plagiarism against all sources that are indexed by turnitin. If you want to be 100% sure of your paper’s originality, we suggest you check it using the WriteCheck service from turnitin.com and send us the report.

• ### I received some comments from my teacher. Can you help me with them?

Yes. You can have a free revision during 7 days after you’ve approved the paper. To apply for a free revision, please press the revision request button on your personal order page. You can also apply for another writer to make a revision of your paper, but in such a case, we can ask you for an additional 12 hours, as we might need some time to find another writer to work on your order.

After the 7-day period, free revisions become unavailable, and we will be able to propose only the paid option of a minor or major revision of your paper. These options are mentioned on your personal order page.
