## Homework Statement

Can I measure the probability of a person being at a certain end location after n steps using the binomial distribution if,

probability student goes x=x+3 is 0 <= p <0.5 , x=x-1 is 0<= 0.5 p <1.

## Homework Equations

x=x+3 is 0 <= p <0.5

x=x-1 is 0<= 0.5 p <1

## The Attempt at a Solution

I know that I can do this for x=x+1 0<=p<0.5 and x=x-1 0.5<=p<1

And I know it doesn't work if it's position based, so for example at x=10, the probabilities changed.

But, can I do it if they move a larger distance in one direction than the other such as the example I have posted?

Thanks
