I know that a Binomial Distribution, with parameters n and p, is the discrete probability distribution of the number of successes in a sequence of n independent yes/no experiments, each of which yields success with probability p.
I read that the sum of the roll of two dice is a binomial distribution. Is this right? I know that the sum looks like a binomial:
But if it is a binomial :
- What event do I regard as a success?
- What is its probability?
- How many times do I repeat the experiment?
I mean a Binomial Distribution measures the probability of observing an event (which has probability of success p), k times in specific amount of repetitions n. Here I see 12 different events with different probabilities and I am confused.
