© Boardworks Ltd of 58 Many real-life situations can be modelled using statistical distributions. Examples of the types of problem that can be addressed using these distributions include: Special distributions In a board game, players needs a six before they can start. What is the probability that they haven’t started after 5 tries? What proportion of the adult population have an IQ above 120? The number of accidents on a stretch of motorway averages 1 every 2 days. How likely is it that there will be no accidents in a week? 12% of people are left-handed. What is the probability that a class of 30 people will have more than 6 left-handed people?

© Boardworks Ltd of 58 Introductory example: A spinner is divided into four equal sized sections marked 1, 2, 3, 4. If the spinner is spun 6 times, how likely is it to land on 1 on four occasions? The number of possible sequences is Binomial distribution One possible sequence would be ′ 1′. (i.e. the number of ways of arranging 6 items, where 4 are of one kind and 2 are of a different kind). Each sequence has probability × So the required probability is Most calculators have an nCr button
© Boardworks Ltd of 58 A binomial distribution arises when the following conditions are met: Binomial distribution If the above conditions are satisfied and X is the random variable for the number of successes, then X has a binomial distribution. We write: X ~ B(n, p). an experiment is repeated a fixed number ( n ) of times (i.e., there is a fixed number of trials); the outcomes from the trials are independent of one another; each trial has two possible outcomes (referred to as success and failure); the probability of a success ( p ) is constant. n and p are called parameters.
© Boardworks Ltd of 58 Which of these situations might reasonably be modelled by a binomial distribution? Binomial Not binomial Binomial Binomial distribution Joan takes a multiple choice examination consisting of 40 questions. X is the number of questions answered correctly if she chooses each answer completely at random. A bag contains 6 blue and 8 green counters. James randomly picks 5 counters from the bag without replacement. X is the number of blue counters picked out. A bag contains 6 blue and 8 green counters. Jan randomly picks 5 counters from the bag, replacing each counter before picking the next. X is the number of blue counters picked out. Outcomes are not independent 1 2 3
© Boardworks Ltd of 58 Which of these situations might reasonably be modelled by a binomial distribution? Not binomial Not binomial Binomial Binomial distribution Jon throws a dice repeatedly until he obtains a six. X is the number of throws he needs before a six arises. Judy counts the number of silver cars that pass her along a busy stretch of road. X is the number of silver cars that pass in a minute. Josh is a mid-wife. He delivers 10 babies. X is the number of babies that are girls The number of trials is not fixed

Example: X ~ B (12, 0.4). Finda) P( X = 3) b) P( X > 1).
