A binomial distribution must meet these four requirements

A fixed number of tests

Each test must be independent

There can be only two results (Success or Failure)

No test has any impact on any other test.

The Poisson and Binomial distributions are discrete "counting" distributions. The regular probability distributions (not sampling distributions) are generally skewed, not symmetric like the normal distribution (which by the way is continuous, not discrete). The Binomial distribution assumes a predetermined number of trials, but the Poisson has no upper limit of possible successes. This is why limits are used to show the relationship between the two distributions.

The normal distribution has a bell curve as its probability distribution. Many practical real-world...
