Is quite easy to understand. What I don't understand though is this:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

When you sum over all the binomial probabilities from i=0 to n you should get 1, as this corresponds to the total probability of getting any outcome. I just don't understand what it is, that guarantees that you always get one when you sum over:

Ʃ(p)^{i}(1-p)^{n-i}[itex]\cdot[/itex]K(n,i)

Why is this sum always equal to 1?
