### How does this solution relate to the actual real-life stats problem?

4.62 in Newbold (8 ed): A new warehouse is being designed and a decision concerning the number of loading docks is required. There are two models based on truckarrival assumptions for the ...

### Rule of thumb criteria for number of trials needed to do a binomial test

I have outcomes from a simulation that I expect will exceed a certain number 5% of the time. In order to test if the hypothesis that the probability of an exceedance is indeed 5% I am performing a ...

### Struggling with implementation of Bayesian model (R JAGS)

For more on the background of the model, see my previous question here that describes the context more clearly. In essence, there is a particular Bayesian model that I am trying to implement. Here ...

### How sampling distribution of sample proportion is related to binomial distribution

I am reading a book on introductory statistics. In the book, the author introduces the concept of the "sampling distribution of sample proportion" just after explaining the binomial distribution. I ...

### How to estimate this expectation involving two binomial random variables?

$X$ and $Y$ are two independent binomial random variables where $X\sim B(K_1, q), Y\sim B(K_0, p)$, (Suppose $p>q, p+q$ is not necessarily equal to 1). I am wondering how to compute the following ...

### Majority voting error rate with binomial distribution

We all know that the ensemble error rate for majority voting rule follows binomial distribution (see picture): where p is the error probability of single classifier. However, I have hard time ...

### Choosing between two models, logistic regression vs mixed model

I have a dataset, the distribution looks like this, before and after log-transformation. The data tends to separate itself towards two extremes, thus motivating me to classify them as binary and fit ...

### Why does using the pnorm function on the intercept estimate of a binomial regression recover the mean of the dependent variable?

I've fit a series of mixed effect models with the lme4 package in r on a set of binomial outcome variables (1: the event happened, 2: it did not). The fixed effect specification is intercept only, and ...

### Bayesian model: binomial(s) conditional on Poisson

I am struggling a little with how to conceptualize and specify a particular Bayesian model. I suspect the solution is rather simple but for some reason I am having a hard time thinking about this. ...

### why binomial test is considered “nonparametric”?

why binomial test is considered "nonparametric" ? After all it is used to test against an hypotetical parameter p in a binomial distribution, so IT IS about a parameter ! edit:I don't remember ...
