Basics of Statistics – Binomial Distribution

Viewer Rating Today, I would like to extend my previous topic on discrete probability distribution with the concept of Binomial Distribution. A binomial distribution is a specific probability distribution. It is used to model the probability of obtaining one of two outcomes, a certain number of times k out of fixed number of trials N of a discrete … Read more

Basics of Statistics – Discrete Variable Distribution

Viewer Rating In today’s topic I want to explain how we plot the distribution of a random discrete variable. Key terms: expected mean, probability, variance and standard deviation. Let’s explain it by an example. For rolling a Die, let us assume a random variable X (x=1,2,3,4,5,6). The probability is P(x) =1/6. That is exactly same … Read more
