The BINOMDIST function is one of the statistical functions. It is used to return the individual term binomial distribution probability.
The BINOMDIST function syntax is:
BINOMDIST(number-successes, number-trials, success-probability, cumulative-flag)
number-successes is the number of successes in the trials, a numeric value greater than or equal to 0.
number-trials is the number of trials, a numeric value greater than or equal to number-successes.
success-probability is the success propability of each trial, a numeric value greater than or equal to 0 but less than or equal to 1.
cumulative-flag is the function form. It is a logical value: TRUE or FALSE. If it is TRUE, the function will return the cumulative distribution function. If it is FALSE, the function will return the probability mass function.
The values can be entered manually or included into the cells you make reference to.
To apply the BINOMDIST function,
- select the cell where you wish to display the result,
- click the Insert Function icon situated at the top toolbar,
or right-click within a selected cell and select the Insert Function option from the menu,
or click the icon situated at the formula bar,
- select the Statistical function group from the list,
- click the BINOMDIST function,
- enter the required arguments separating them by commas,
- press the Enter button.
The result will be displayed in the selected cell.
