Question about Texas Instruments TI-34II Explorer Plus Calculator

How do I enter in a binomial distribution formula into a TI-34II calc? The numbers are as follows: n=100; p=0.8; q=0.2; x=85; (n-x)=15 I have an exam tomorrow and forgot to bring my graphing calc to school! please help!

Suppose that astronomers estimate that large meteors (above a certain size) hit the earth on average once every 100 years (lamda = 1 event per 100 years), and that the number of meteor hits follows a Poisson distribution. What is the probability of k = 4 meteors hits in the next 100 years?

The number of combinations of **n objects taken r at a time **has a reserved symbol **nCr**. On calculators it has a special key (or shifted key) marked **nCr.**

By definition** nCr=(n!)/((r!)*(n-r)!)**=**nC(n-r)**

In what follows, I am using parentheses to enclose what is in the denominators). So

10!/(8!2!)=10C2 or 10C8 =45 (they have the same value)

10!/(9!1!)=10C9=10C1=10

10!/(10!0!)=1

The key is accessed by sequence [2nd] 8

Eg; Selecting 3 out of 5

5C3 is entered as 5 [2nd][8] 3 [=], result is 10

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.

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.

Hello,

This is for the TI-30 XIIS. It should work for you once you find the (nCr) key or the menu item under PRB key. If you know the formula skip to Exemple

Let us start with a review of the formula for the binomial distribution

**f(r;n,p)=n!/(r!(n-r)!)x(p^r)x(1-p)^(n-r) **

But**n!/(r!(n-r)!)=(nCr)** you get

f(r;n,p)=**(nCr)x(p^r)x(1-p)^(n-r) **

**Exemple : n=25, r=6, p=0.7 **

**f(6;25,0.7)= **25** [PRB] [-->] **6 **[ x ] {**0.7**[ ^] **6 **}[ x ]{**0.3**[ ^ ]**19**}**

The arrow means a horizontal scroll once to select the (nCr) function. [ x ] stands for the multiplication sign.

[ ^] is the raise to the power key

The { } are used here as parentheses to make formula legible.

Press [2nd] [LOG] to display the menu for logs and exponential functions. Select [LN]. Enter the (positive) number, close the right parenthesis and press [ENTER].

To enter a number in scientific notation use the [EE] key. Press the change sign key [(-)] before entering a negative exponent.

Ex: Enter the .lectron charge 1.6 *10-19

1.6 [EE] [(-)] 19 [ENTER=]

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.
