Suppose we want to determine the (binomial) probability (p) of getting 4 heads in 15 flips of a 2-sided coin. Using the Binomial Probabilities Table in Appendix B of the text, what values of n, x and p would we use to look up this probability, and what would be the probability?

• Statistics -

n = 15
x = 4
p = .5
