Incomplete Beta function

I am looking for an approximation/bound for the incomplete Beta function $B_z(a,b)$ when $z\to0$. I know the Taylor expansion would help. However, I need a power series in $z^n$ (the exponential is an ...
Estimate the probability of success Suppose I send 10 tasks to my machine. 6 out of 10 tasks success, and 4 failed. These outcomes is summarized by $X$ as a binary variable, 1 is task success, and 0 ...
