- Calculate the mean and standard deviation of a binomial distribution

Our discussion of discrete probability distributions so far has been limited to general distributions based on historical data that has been previously collected. However, some theoretical probability distributions are based on a mathematical formula rather than historical data. We will address the first of these, the binomial ...
