consider caleb the basketball player. In a game, he shoots 10 free throws. In the year, he makes 70% of his free throws. Is this a binomial setting? Fully explain your response.

• Statistic -

p(good) = .7 , p(fail) = .3
n = 10
crunch it out with your binomial distribution
P(2) for example = C(10,2)*.7^2*.3^8
= 10!/[8!*2!] * .49 * 6.56*10^-5
= 45 * .49 * 6.56*10^-5
= .001447
