# How to use the binomial distribution table?

#### Understand the Problem

The question is asking for guidance on how to utilize a binomial distribution table, which is a statistical tool used to calculate probabilities for a binomial distribution. This involves understanding the parameters of the distribution and interpreting the values in the table for specific scenarios.

#### Answer

Identify n, r, and p, then find the appropriate values in the binomial distribution table.

To use the binomial distribution table, locate the mini-table for your number of trials, find the row for the number of successes, and find the column for the probability of success.

##### Answer for screen readers

To use the binomial distribution table, locate the mini-table for your number of trials, find the row for the number of successes, and find the column for the probability of success.

#### More Information

Binomial distribution tables are often used to calculate the probability of a specific number of successes in a fixed number of trials, especially in scenarios where manual calculation of binomial probabilities is cumbersome.

#### Tips

A common mistake is to confuse the number of successes (r) with the number of trials (n). Always verify your values before looking them up in the table.
