# Thread: Median, mode, normal distribution

1. In a digital communication channel, assume that the number of bits received in error can be modeled by a binomial random variable, and assumed that a bit is received in error is 1×ã€–10ã€—^(âˆ’5) . if 16 million bits are transmitted,
What is the probability that more than 150 errors occur?
Find the median and mode of the distribution.
help needed to solve this

Hi wajeehayas!

What have you tried so far? What do you know about the binomial distribution? Here we have a large number of samples. Have you read or heard about how we can handle situations like that?
