Exercise

# Binomial distribution

As we touched on in the slides, the binomial distribution is used to model the **number of successful outcomes in trials** where there is some consistent probability of success.

For this exercise, consider a game where you are trying to make a ball in a basket. You are given **10 shots** and you know that you have an **80% chance** of making a given shot. To simplify things, assume each shot is an independent event.

Instructions

**100 XP**

- Generate some data for the distribution using the
`rvs()`

function with size set to 1000; assign it to the`data`

variable. - Display a
`matplotlib`

histogram; examine the shape of the distribution. - Assign the probability of making 8 or less shots to
`prob1`

and print the result. - Assign the probability of making all 10 shots to
`prob2`

and print the result.
