The part in the formula for the binomial distribution is a binomial coefficient and not the ratio .
Hi,
Calculating the probability as stated below, I cannot make it work because by my calculations it is undefined where n=8 and x=0
p=0.20
n = 8
x < 2
P(x <2)= P(x=0)+P(x=1)
= 8/0*(0.20)^0*(1-0.20)^8 + 8/1*(0.20)^1*(1-0.20)^7
What is wrong with my workings?
Thanks

Update: Would it be more appropriate to write it as 1-(P((X=2)+(X=3)+(X=4)+(X=5)+(X=6)+(X=7)+(X=8))
