Probability (57%)

Hello-

I'd like to create a simple program(s) that return a yes or no or a one or zero with different probabilities (56%, 57% 58%). I have a TI 83 (the old one, not the +) and haven't used it in a while but remember the basics. Would love and help I can get.

Thank you!

binomial distribution was close but no cigar

I found a link for binomial distribution which was close
but it's not exactly what I want. If someone could let me know the terms for what I'm searching for (the calculator uses a term for "distribution" and I'm using terms like "probability")

Total newb. Any help is awesome. Thank you.

Is it a poisson distribution?

It's randBin(1,.57) for 57% "yes."

For future users:

on the ti-83+, push MATH. scroll over to PRB.

Click randInt(

insert (1,100)

click enter and a random number will appear, 1-100.

everything from 1-57 is a yes (1). everything from 58-100 is a no (0).
