    Binomial distribution models the number of successes in a sequence of n independent yes/no experiments, each with an equal probability of occurring. For example, if a player takes 10 shoots on goal, each with equal chance of scoring, a binomial distribution may be used to model the probability of scoring a certain number of goals. Another example would be ...
