39: Bernoulli Trials

Bernoulli trial is a random experiment where there are 2 possible outcomes, and the probability distribution of each trial is identical and independent of all other trials. An example of such an experiment is flipping a coin: the 2 possible outcomes are heads or tails, and each coin flip has an identical and independent probability of being heads or tails.

Bernoulli trials are sometimes referred to as binomial trials, since they follow a binomial distribution.
