    Binomial Table up to n=50?

    Im doing a stats homework on hypothesis tests.

    On the question im on, there are 50 trials. How am i supposed to do this when my table booklet only goes up to n = 20?

    Are there any sites with higher tables on?

    ah thanks for offering anyway, but i just wanted to know if there is a way to do it without having a larger table, or if there are larger tables on the internet. Il just tell my teacher if you can't as he wont mind.

    If it's binomial probability, then do it with the formula and do not rely on a table. If we are on the same page.

    Yeh i understand what you mean, but the hypothesis test requires use of cumulative probability, as im working out the probability of 10 out of 50 sucesses, so id have do work it out for 1,2,3,4,5,6.... all the way to 10 and add them together, where as with the table i just search the value of less than or equal to 10.

    If that made sense lol im not too good at explaining.
