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

### 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.

### Binomial distribution

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

### Can you calculate nCr ?

Yes. Use the 2nd [nCr] function.

52 2nd [nCr] 5 = will calculate the number of 5-card poker hands that can be dealt from a deck of 52 cards.

### How to use binomial in calculator

The binomial probability distribution is defined as
P(r;p;n) =(nCr)(p^r)*(1-p)^(n-r), where n is the number of trials, p the probability of success, and r the expected result.

Let n=20, r=7, p=0.15 ( I do not know wether this exemple has any meaning in the context of your problem, but you have to enter values that mean something to you.) I am only showing you the key strokes

To enter 20C7 you press 20 [SHIFT][nCr]7 ;
To enter 0.15 to the power 7 you type 0.15[X to ] 7 the key is between
[x²] and [log]

To enter (1-0.15) to power 20-7, you type 0.85 [X to] 13
With [*] standing for multiplication key , and [X to] the raise to power key, the exemple above can be entered as

( 20 [SHIFT][nCr] 7) [*] ( 0.15 [X to] 7 ) [*] ( 0.85 [X to] 13 ) [=]

Here is a screen capture to show you what it looks like. However on this calculator the combination 20 [SHIFT][nCr] 7 is represented as nCr(20,7).

### Binomial function

Hello,

The binomial probability distribution is defined as
P(r;p;n) =(nCr)(p^r)*(1-p)^(n-r)
where n is the number of trials, p the probability of success, and r the expected result.

Let n=20, r=7, p=0.15 ( I do not know wether this exemple has any meaning in the context of your problem, but you have to enter values that mean something to you. I am only showing you the key strokes

### 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.

### How do i enter the formula into my calc for a binomial distribution? this is for a ti-30xs multiview

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.

Hope it helps
