## Homework Statement

The Binomial Distribution - already developed by Jacob Bernoulli (in 1713), et alii, before Abraham de Moivre (1667-1754 CE), et alii, developed the Normal Distribution as an approximation for it (id est, the Binomial Distribution) - gives the discrete probability distribution

*P*(

_{p}*n*|

*N*) of obtaining exactly n successes out of

*N*Bernoulli trials (where the result of each Bernoulli trial is true with probability

*p*and false with probability

*q*=1-

*p*). Next: Normal Distribution...

## Homework Equations

[tex] P_p (N|n) = \binom{N}{n}p^n q^{N-n} [/tex]

## The Attempt at a Solution

[tex] P_p (N|n) = \frac{N!}{n! (N-n)!} p^n (1-p)^{N-n}[/tex]

This has been an attempt at self-review; and a chance to learn to use LaTex. Thanks for any replies to check my work!
