I have the original TI-85 Graphics Calculator Guidebook (quite thick), but I no longer own the calculator. You are welcome to have it, since I was just about to throw it away. If you want it, please e-mail me at: srairigh@iserv.net within the next week, as I'd like to get it off my desk. Thanks! -- Sandy

SOURCE: I totally forgot how to do binomial pdf can you

Hello,
Press the yellow [2nd] key then [VARS] (DISTR) to access the distributions. Scroll Up or down to see 0:binompdf( . Press 0 |ENTER|. The command echoes on the screen as binompdf(. Complete the command by entering the number of trials, the probability of success, and the value expected. Number of trials, and the value expected are integers.
You can also run the command giving it a sequence of expected values. In that case the sequence of expected values must be enclosed in curly brackets
Hope it helps.

Do you have the Stats/List-Editor app loaded? If not, you can download it from http://education.ti.com

You can also try StatLite, available from http://www.ticalc.org

SOURCE: How do I fix the contrast on a ti 85 Calculator

Turn the calculator on. Press and release the 2ND key. Press and hold the up-arrow key to increase or the down-arrow key to decrease the contrast.

Texas 30XIIB binomial cdf


The only known equation for the cumulative binomial distribution is the sum of the individual binomial probabilities. Some more sophisticated (and more expensive) calculators have that equation built in, but the 30xii does not.

If n>30 and n*p>5 and n*(1-p)>5 then you can approximate the cumulative binomial with the normal probability function, but again the 30xii does not have that built in.

Ti-84 BINOMIAL PDF


I encountered this same problem with the TI-84. Turns out you have to put your P (Percentage) as out of one hundred. For example. With my problem I had;

Trails: 13
P: 53/100
X Value: L1 (List 1)

And then it posted my probabilities to the L2 list. For some reason if you just put 53, or whatever your percentage of success in, it won't calculate.

TI-89 Titanium: I want to solve a Binomial Theorem problem (x+y)^6 how would i go about solving this in the calculator?


Using elementary algebria in the binomial theorem, I expanded the power (x + y)^n into a sum involving terms in the form a x^b y^c. The coefficient of each term is a positive integer, and the sum of the exponents of x and y in each term is n. This is known as binomial coefficients and are none other than combinatorial numbers.

Combinatorial interpretation:

Using binomial coefficient (n over k) allowed me to choose k elements from an n-element set. This you will see in my calculations on my Ti 89. This also allowed me to use (x+y)^n to rewrite as a product. Then I was able to combine like terms to solve for the solution as shown below.
(x+y)^6= (x+y)(x+y)(x+y)(x+y)(x+y)(x+y) = x^6+6x^5y+15x^4y^2+20x^3y^3+15x^2y^4+6xy^5+y^6

This also follows Newton's generalized binomial theorem:

Now to solve using the Ti 89.


Using sigma notation, and factorials for the combinatorial numbers, here is the binomial theorem:

The summation sign is the general term. Each term in the sum will look like that as you will see on my calculator display. Tthe first term having k = 0; then k = 1, k = 2, and so on, up to k = n.
Notice that the sum of the exponents (n ? k) + k, always equals n.

The summation being preformed on the Ti 89. The actual summation was preformed earlier. I just wanted to show the symbolic value of (n) in both calculations. All I need to do is drop the summation sign to the actual calculation and, fill in the term value (k), for each binomial coefficient.

This is the zero th term. x^6, when k=0. Notice how easy the calculations will be. All I'm doing is adding 1 to the value of k.


oneplusgh_19.jpg

This is the first term or, first coefficient 6*x^5*y, when k=1.
Solution so far = x^6+6*x^5*y



oneplusgh_20.jpg


This is the 2nd term or, 2nd coefficient 15*x^4*y^2, when k=2.
Solution so far = x^6+6*x^5*y+15*x^4*y^2



oneplusgh_27.jpg



This is the 3rd term or, 3rd coefficient 20*x^3*y^3, when k=3.
Solution so far = x^6+6*x^5*y+15*x^4*y^2+20*x^3*y^3



oneplusgh_28.jpg



This is the 4th term or, 4th coefficient 15*x^2*y^4, when k=4.
Solution so far = x^6+6*x^5*y+15*x^4*y^2+20*x^3*y^3+15*x^2*y^4



oneplusgh_21.jpg


This is the 5th term or, 5th coefficient 6*x*y^5, when k=5.
Solution so far = x^6+6*x^5*y+15*x^4*y^2+20*x^3*y^3+15*x^2*y^4+6*x*y^5



oneplusgh_22.jpg

This is the 6th term or, 6th coefficient y^6, when k=6.
Solution so far = x^6+6*x^5*y+15*x^4*y^2+20*x^3*y^3+15*x^2*y^4+6*x*y^5+y^6



oneplusgh_23.jpg

Putting the coefficients together was equal or, the same as for when I used the expand command on the Ti 89.

binomial coefficient (n over k) for (x+y)^6
x^6+6*x^5*y+15*x^4*y^2+20*x^3*y^3+15*x^2*y^4+6*x*y^5+y^6

I was told that, to do binomial distributions on a ti-86, I would need to hit 2nd Math, then More, and I should see something that says STAT and go from there to get to DIST and Binomi. I see nothing...


Hello,

Sorry, but you information is wrong, to find the binomial distribution use the PROB menu not the STAT menu. Its name is randBi
[2nd][MATH][F2:PROB] scroll right.
Hope it helps.

Error message with binopdf function


Yes, eleven million is rather extreme for the binomial distribution. For this large a value the binomial distribution is sufficiently indistinguishable from the normal approximation.
