Shore - 08-31-2016 07:47 PM Combination: Find the number of groups out of a possible set of objects. The order of objects obtained does not matter. Store n in R1, x in R0, and p in R2. Press [ f ] [ R↓] (CLEAR PRGM), [ R/S ] Formula: COMB(n, x) = n!/(x! * (n-x)!) Binomial Distribution: Find number of successes (x) in a fixed number of trials (n). Store n in R1, x in R0, and p in R2. Press [ g ] [ R↓ ] (GTO) 26, [R/S] Formula: COMB(n, x) * p^x * (1 – p)^(n – x) Negative Binomial Distribution: Find the number of trials (n) needed to obtain a fixed amount of successes (x). Store x in R1, n in R0, and p in R2. Press [ g ] [ R↓ ] (GTO) 43, [R/S] Formula: COMB(x – 1, n – 1) * p^(n -1) * (1 – p)^((x - 1) - (n – 1)) In the distribution calculations, p is the probability where 0 ≤ p ≤ 1. Note: R3 is used as a flag, which will allowed for branching.
