Bis twice _ nomen name: cf. F. Binome, LL. Binomius (or fr. Bi _ gr. Distribution ?). Cf. Monomial. 1. Consisting of two terms; pertaining to binomials; as, a binomial root. 2. Having two names; used of the system by which every animal and plant receives two names, the one indicating the genus, the other the species, to which it belongs. (Science: mathematics) binomial theorem, the theorem which expresses the law of formation of any power of a binomial. Please contribute to this project, if you have more information about this term feel free to edit this page Results from our forumProbability Genetics question... for bbbb. But for others, it changes: For example for 1 g and 3 b its: gbbb: 6.25 % bgbb: 6.25 % bbgb: 6.25 % bbbg: 6.25 % Total: 25 % As using binomial expansion it's: (g+b)^4 = g^4 + 4(g^3)b + 6(g^2)(b^2) + 4g(b^3) + b^4 2 boys and 2 girls = 6(g^2)(b^2) = 6 x 1/4 x 1/4 = 0.375 which is 37.5% ...

Probability Genetics question... four children can we expect to have two boys and two girls? I know its a 50% chance of each (for the purposes of this problem). I am asked to use binomial expansion to solve. I underlined the percentage of families because that is where it differs from all the other problems I've encountered thus ...

Re: Biology statistics problem: binomial with nonconstant pI did a poor job of explaining myself. Suppose 100 events/trials, each with a different (and known) frequency of success (p). I want to calculate the probabilities of the 100 trials resulting in 0 total succesful trials, 1 total successful trial, 2, 3, ... 99, and 100 total successful trials.

Biology statistics problem: binomial with nonconstant p... to increase by half an hour, which is unacceptable. That's when I started looking into trying to calculate this curve. From what I've read, the binomial distribution is clearly what I want, except for one thing, it assumes p is constant. In my problem, every p is different. Is this possible ...
