Question about Texas Instruments TI-30 XIIS Calculator

# In binomial distributions, using the PRB button to get the !. At end of problem after I have the ! on the denominator, how do I get it to give answer. When I hit the equal sign after the ! I get a syntax error.

### Demonstrate how to multiply two binomials

Try to seek these: By using the suggested format:
Suggested su
1. Adding and Subtracting Binomials
• 1

Arrange each term in each binomial in order of degree from greatest to least. The degree of a binomial is the exponent attached to the term. For example, 4x^2 is a second degree term.

• 2

Multiply each term in the binomial that is being subtracted by -1 to turn it into an addition problem. For example, the problem (8x^2 + 8) - (x^2 - 2) becomes (8x^2 + 8) + (-x^2 + 2).

• 3

Combine like terms. In the example problem, the x^2 terms are combined and the constant terms are combined, yielding (8x^2 + 8) + (-x^2 + 2) = 7x^2 + 10.

Multiplying Binomials
• 4

Understand the F.O.I.L. method. F.O.I.L. is an acronym standing for first, outside, inside and last. It means that you multiply the first number of the first binomial by the first number of the second, then the numbers on the outside (the first term of the first binomial by the second term of the second binomial) and so on. This ensures that both numbers in the first binomial are multiplied by both numbers in the second.

• 5

Use the F.O.I.L. method to multiply the two binomials together. For example, (3x + 4)(3x - 4) = 9x^2 +12x - 12x - 16. Notice that -12x is the product of the outside terms and -16 is the product of the last terms, 4 and -4.

• 6

Simplify. There will almost always be like terms to combine. In the example, 12x and -12x cancel out, yielding the answer 9x^2 - 16.

Dividing Binomials
• 7

Use the distributive property to divide both terms in the binomial by the monomial divisor. For example, (18x^3 + 9x^2) / 3x = (18x^3 / 3x) + (9x^2 / 3x).

• 8

Understand how to divide by a term. If you are dividing a higher order term by a lower order term, you subtract the exponent. For example, y^3/y = y^2. The number part of each term is handled like any other division problem. For example, 20z / 4 = 5z.

• 9

Divide each term in the binomial by the divisor; (18x^3 / 3x) + (9x^2 / 3x) = 6x^2 + 3x.

### Texas 30XIIB binomial cdf

The only known equation for the cumulative binomial distribution is the sum of the individual binomial probabilities. Some more sophisticated (and more expensive) calculators have that equation built in, but the 30xii does not.

If n>30 and n*p>5 and n*(1-p)>5 then you can approximate the cumulative binomial with the normal probability function, but again the 30xii does not have that built in.

### Binomial distribution

The number of combinations of n objects taken r at a time has a reserved symbol nCr. On calculators it has a special key (or shifted key) marked nCr.
By definition nCr=(n!)/((r!)*(n-r)!)=nC(n-r)
In what follows, I am using parentheses to enclose what is in the denominators). So
10!/(8!2!)=10C2 or 10C8 =45 (they have the same value)
10!/(9!1!)=10C9=10C1=10
10!/(10!0!)=1

### How to solve foil method

The FOIL Method is a process used in algebra to multiply two binomials. The lesson on the Distributive Property, explained how to multiply a monomial or a single term such as 7 by a binomial such as (4 + 9x).
But, what if there was a binomial instead of a single term outside of the parentheses? That is, what if a binomial was being multiplied by another binomial? An example of this is given below.

FOIL stands for:
First - Multiply the first term in each set of parentheses Outer - Multiply the outer term in each set of parentheses Inner - Multiply the inner term in each set of parentheses Last - Multiply the last term in each set of parentheses Now let's give it a try in our problem. We'll start by multiplying the first term in each set of parentheses and then marking down the answer below the problem.
Now we will multiply the outer terms and again mark down the answer below the problem.
And the Inners.
And finally the last terms.

### I was told that, to do binomial distributions on a ti-86, I would need to hit 2nd Math, then More, and I should see something that says STAT and go from there to get to DIST and Binomi. I see nothing...

Hello,

Sorry, but you information is wrong, to find the binomial distribution use the PROB menu not the STAT menu. Its name is randBi
[2nd][MATH][F2:PROB] scroll right.
Hope it helps.

### How do i enter the formula into my calc for a binomial distribution? this is for a ti-30xs multiview

Hello,
This is for the TI-30 XIIS. It should work for you once you find the (nCr) key or the menu item under PRB key. If you know the formula skip to Exemple

Let us start with a review of the formula for the binomial distribution
f(r;n,p)=n!/(r!(n-r)!)x(p^r)x(1-p)^(n-r)

But n!/(r!(n-r)!)=(nCr) you get
f(r;n,p)= (nCr)x(p^r)x(1-p)^(n-r)

Exemple : n=25, r=6, p=0.7

f(6;25,0.7)= 25 [PRB] [-->] 6 [ x ] {0.7[ ^] 6 }[ x ]{0.3[ ^ ]19}

The arrow means a horizontal scroll once to select the (nCr) function. [ x ] stands for the multiplication sign.
[ ^] is the raise to the power key
The { } are used here as parentheses to make formula legible.

Hope it helps

### Error message with binopdf function

Yes, eleven million is rather extreme for the binomial distribution. For this large a value the binomial distribution is sufficiently indistinguishable from the normal approximation.
