# What is a binomial distribution?

See the full explanation presented.

When we have 100 coins and we give those coins to a set of people in any manner, it is said that we are distributing coins.

In a similar way, when the total probability (which is 1) is distributed among the different values associated with the random variable, we are distributing probability. Hence, it is called a probability distribution. If there is a rule that determines what probability should be assigned to which value, then such a rule is called the probability distribution function. The binomial distribution gets its name because the rule that determines the different probabilities are the terms of the binomial expansion.

When evaluating a one-sided limit, you need to be careful when a quantity is approaching zero since its sign is different depending on which way it is approaching zero from. Let us look at some examples.

- What is a binomial distribution?
- The probability that a DVD player produced by VCA Television is defective is estimated to be 0.07. A sample of ten players is selected at random. What is the probability that the sample contains no defective units?
- Three manufacturing plants, say I, II and III, produce 20, 30 and 50 percent of a company’s output respectively. What is the probability that a randomly-chosen item from the company’s warehouse is defective?
- A coin is tossed 16 times. What is the probability of obtaining exactly 14 heads?
- What is APY(Annual Percentage Yield)? How is the APY compounded semiannually at #15%#, different from the same amount compounded continuously at #14%#?
