description
Suppose there exists a large bin containing both black and white
balls. 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.
