Hello professor,

My calculator is a TI-nspire, and it’s upper/lower limit can be inserted into binomcdf function. So do I need to write like this binomcdf(n=...,p=...) or just binomcdf (...,...,...,...)?

I have a question, in example 3 of geometpdf or geomcdf, you didn't include 0 person. But in examples of binomial, you included 0 person. So what's the difference? And should we include 0?

How do you get formula of variance of binomial distribution?
Why Var(x)=np(1-p)?
And for geometric distribution, I can't understand for both expected value and variance.
Could you give me some explanation?
Thanks a lot.
