Bi- in binomial distributions refers to the two outcomes usually described as Success or no Success. A “yes” or “no”.
Probability distributions in general are used to predict future events and often based on nasty looking mathematical formulas. But, there is also a beautiful thing here. For example the specific binomial distribution mathematical function can be used to predict the outcomes of any real life event which has two outcomes. …
