BINOM.DIST

BINOM.DIST(number_s, trials, probability_s, cumulative)

Returns the probability of getting a specific number of successes using a binomial distribution.

 number_s The number of successes. trials The total number of trials. probability_s The probability of a success on each trial. cumulative A logical value indicating the type of function to use:False (or 0) = [[probability distribution function]] (equal to)True (<> 0) = [[cumulative probability function]] (equal to or less than)

 REMARKS
 * This function was added in Excel 2010 to replace the BINOMDIST function.* For an illustrated example refer to the page under [[Distributions]]* The binomial distribution is a [[discrete distribution]]* The binomial distribution is used when there are only two possible outcomes.* If any of the arguments are not numeric, then #VALUE! is returned.* The "number_s" and "trials" are truncated to integers.* If "number_s" < 0, then #NUM! is returned.* If "number_s" > "trials", then #NUM! is returned.* If "probability_s" < 0, then #NUM! is returned.* If "probability_s" > 1, then #NUM! is returned.* If "cumulative" = False, then the height of the curve at "x" is returned.* If "cumulative" = True, then the area under the curve to the left of "x" is returned. Example 5.* You can use the BINOM.INV function to return the number of trials needed for a specific amount of success using a binomial distribution.* You can use the BINOM.DIST.RANGE function to * You can use the NEGBINOM.DIST function to* You can use the POISSON.DIST function* For the Microsoft documentation refer to support.microsoft.com
