This page will generate a graphic and numerical display of the properties of a binomial sampling distribution, for any values of p and q, and for values of n between 1 and 40, inclusive. As the page opens, you will be prompted to enter the values of n and p. The value of p can be entered either as a decimal fraction, such as .25, or as a common fraction, such as 1/4. Note that there is quite a lot of number-crunching going on behind the scenes with this page. Computation time increases exponentially as a function of n; so unless your computer is fairly fast, values of n greater than 20 will require a bit of patience.
