## RANDBIN Generate Binomial Random Variables

Section: Random Number Generation

### Usage

Generates random variables with a binomial distribution. The general syntax for its use isy = randbin(N,p)

where `N`

is a vector representing the number of Bernoulli
trials, and `p`

is the success probability associated with each
trial.

### Function Internals

A Binomial random variable describes the number of successful outcomes from`N`

Bernoulli trials, with the probability of
success in each trial being `p`

. The probability distribution
is

### Example

Here we generate`10`

binomial random variables, corresponding
to `N=100`

trials, each with probability `p=0.1`

, using
both `randbin`

and then again using `rand`

(to simulate the trials):
--> randbin(100,.1*ones(1,10)) ans = 13 6 8 9 11 9 6 9 7 10 --> sum(rand(100,10)<0.1) ans = 8 12 10 7 12 4 11 8 9 6
