(1) Summary. I prefer the wording used in the Function Wizard – “Returns the probability of a trial result using a binomial distribution”.
(2) Returns. What does “between which is the probability of a sample” mean?
(3) Arguments. Insufficient definition here. I presume that Trials, T1 and T2 are intended to be integers but, what happens if they are not? Can T1 be > Trials? Can T2 be < T1? As SP is a probability, I assume it needs to be a real number in the range [0, 1].
(4) Arguments. I do not really understand the text description of T1 and T2 as currently written. Can it be made clearer? If T2 isn’t specified then calling T1 a lower limit is misleading.
(5) Examples. The description of the example given is unclear. Do you mean “This formula calculates the probability that a 6 will come up exactly twice in 10 throws of a single dice, assuming that the probability of a 6 (or any other number) coming up on a single throw is 1/6”.
(6) Examples. Consider adding an example in which the T2 argument is used.
