Probability :: discrete :: binomial

By means of four spin buttons, the user changes the values of n, the number of trials (from 1 to 25); p, the probability of "success"; and two values of the discrete random variable X. Various probabilities and the graph with the pdf and cdf are updated automatically. (A pull-down menu allows the user to change the amount by which probability p is stepped.) Click on the image, above left; "how to use" this sheet should be intuitive.
