Binomial Distribution
Topic Review on "Title": 
 Bernoulli trial: is an experiment whose outcome is random and can be either of two possible outcomes, "success" and “failure.”
 Independent trials: the outcome from one trial has no effect on the outcome to be obtained from any other trial.
 Binomial Experiment: 1) n independent 2) each trial result in only two outcomes: success and failure. 3) P(success)= p, is constant.
 Bernoulli distribution:
 Mean=px(1)+qx(0)=p
 Variance=pq
 Binomial distribution:
 Mean=np
 Variance=npq=np(1p)
 Definition of a Binomial distribution:
 n independent trials
 each trial result in only success and failure.
 p, is constant.
 Normal Approximation to Binomial Distribution
As n approaches ∞ while p remains fixed, the following distribution approaches the normal distribution with mean 0 and variance
 Poisson approximation to Binomial Distribution
As n approaches ∞ and p approaches 0 while np remains fixed at λ > 0 or at least np approaches λ > 0,
Then the Binomial(n, p) distribution approaches the Poisson distribution with expected value λ.

"Title" Tutorial Summary : 
By completing this course, you will learn about binomial distribution, including Bernoulli distribution, binomial distribution and approximation of binomial distribution.
A Bernoulli trial is an experiment whose outcome is random and can be either of two possible outcomes, “success” and “failure.” This tutorial provides diagram which shows you the relationship between Bernoulli and binomial distribution.
Many practical and easytounderstand examples are used to illustrate how to decide whether an experiment belong to binomial experiment or not and how to compute their related properties.
