Mr K !
In the question "toaster" If I do like this , what is each value mean
binomcdf(2000,0.05)

Actually it doesn't work (maybe because 2000) so I change it to 20.

@CowMilk

binomcdf(2000,0.05) will produce a list of 2001 "probabilities." (Remember, we hav e to include the probability 0 toasters fail.)

binom ==> indicates a binomial distribution

cdf ==> Cumulative Distibution Function

2000 ==> total numebr of toasters, those that work AND those that don't

0.05 ==> the probability that any one toaster will fail
