The true probability of black balls in the bin is P, and the probatility of white balls is (1-P). We obtain a sample of black and white balls from the bin, given as the first two parameters in binomp. The probability of getting this black:white sample is: (black+white)! black white p(black:white|P) = -------------- P (1-P) black!white! The program generates these probabilities for a given P. The results are in a form that the xyplo program can use to plot. see also xyplo.p, binplo.p author Thomas Dana Schneider bugs none known *) (* end module describe.binom *) {This manual page was created by makman 1.44}{created by htmlink 1.55}
