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
