Los Angeles Mission College Produced by DW Example 1: Determine which of the following probability experiments represents a binomial experiment. If the probability experiment is not a binomial experiment, state why. (a) A random sample of 30 cars in a used car lot is obtained, and their mileages recorded. Not a binomial distribution because the mileage can have more than 2 outcomes. (b) A poll of 1,200 registered voters is conducted in which the respondents are asked whether they believe Congress should reform Social Security. A binomial distribution because – there are 2 outcomes. (should or should not reform Social Security) – fixed number of trials. (n = 1200) – the trials are independent. – we assume the probability of success is the same for each trial of experiment.
