The Binomial Coefficient model displays the number of ways k objects can be chosen from among n objects when order is irrelevant.   This number is known as a binomial coefficient and can be used to predict the the flipping of n coins with equal probability of heads and tails.

The Binomial Coefficient model was created using the Easy Java Simulations (EJS) modeling tool.  It is distributed as a ready-to-run (compiled) Java archive.  Double clicking the ejs_stp_BinomialCoefficient.jar file will run the program if Java is installed.

Please note that this resource requires at least version 1.5 of Java (JRE).
