We are starting a chapter of working through our discrete distributions. The first we are going to study is the binomial distribution. This is also called the Bernoulli trials. Before getting to the formula, it is very important that you understand and are able to recognize the general setting for this distribution. Regarding the formula for probability distribution, there are some terrible notation here, but it is kind of universal in the probability textbooks, so we are forced to deal with it. This lesson also covers some key properties of the binomial distribution - the mean, variance, and standard deviation.
