Binomial Distribution

Transform > Probability Distributions > Binomial

Calculates probabilities, cumulative probabilities, and inverse cumulative probabilities for a binomial distribution.

The binomial distribution is based on the probability of observing successes in a fixed number of independent trials. Data are integers greater than or equal to 0.
