A Bernoulli or Binomial Trial has exactly 2 events: Success (Win) and Fail (Lose) with p=Pr(Success).

MetaData: CA_APSP_3.0 Students demonstrate an understanding of the notion of discrete random variables by using this concept to solve for the probabilities of outcomes, such as the probability of the occurrence of five or fewer heads in 14 coin tosses.

• Calculate the theoretical probability of winning.
Recall: The theoretical probability of getting exactly k successes in n trials with a probability p of success in any individual trial is Pr (k,n,p) = \left( {\begin{array}{*{20}{c}} n \\ k \\ \end{array}} \right){p^k}{\left( {1 - p} \right)^{n - k}} = \frac{{n!}}{{k!\left( {n - k} \right)!}}{p^k}{\left( {1 - p} \right)^{n - k}}
Think before calculating: What are the possible values for k?
