Binomial Distribution

Binomial FormulaBinomial Coefficient
P(x) = nCx px (1-p)n-x nCx =       n!      
                  x! (n-x)!

m = np, s2 = np(1-p)

Conversion formula for Normal Distribution

z = x - m

The 95% confidence interval for the population mean

m=       x       ±       1.96 s

Test statistic for hypothesis tests on population mean

z =       x - m
