Hey guys,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Basically I have a component that I want to test multiple times. The outcome of each test is simply a Pass/Fail. What I want to know is how many tests do I have to do to be (say) 95% sure that I have the right result?

My stats knowledge is a bit hazy but I know that for these type of yes/no situations it may be possible to use the Binomial distribution. Am I on the right tracks?

Cheers if you can help.
