Plotting the Binomial Probabilities using MINITAB
1.) Create plots for the three binomial distributions above. Select Graph > Scatter Plot and Simple then for graph 1 set Y equal to 'one fourth' and X to 'success' by clicking on the variable name and using the "select" button below the list of variables. Do this two more times and for graph 2 set Y equal to 'one half' and X to 'success', and for graph 3 set Y equal to 'three fourths' and X to 'success'. Paste those three scatter plots .
2.) Calculate descriptive statistics for the variable where students flipped a coin 10 times. Short Answer Writing Assignment: Both the calculated binomial probabilities and the descriptive statistics from the class database will be used to answer the following questions.
3.) List the probability value for each possibility in the binomial experiment that was calculated with the probability of a success being ½. (Complete sentence not necessary)
4.) Give the probability for the following based on the MINITAB calculations with the probability of a success being ½. (Complete sentence not necessary)
P(4<x ?7) P(x<4 or x?7)
