    Red face basic binomail distribution via CAL

    Hi to all

    this is an easy question which I unable to do with my calculator Ti-89, I know how to we do manual and using the table but for teacher asking for the cal way.
    Question:
    P=0.07
    Q=0.93
    N=50
    P(5)=C5^50 p^5 q^45
    the answer is 0.136
    how do you get the answer with ti-89?
    cheers.

    C is part of the binomial formula ....! C for combinatorial ....!

    In the pop-up window I've already told you about:

    Num Trials, n: 50
    Prob Success, p: 0.07
    X Value: 5
