Discussion:

Paragraph 1 says that "A binomial distributon random distribution produces integer values i>0 with p(i) = (n choose i) * p*i * (1-p)^(t-i), where t and p are the parameters of the distribution. OK, that tells us what t, p, and i are. What's n?

Proposed resolution:

Berlin: Typo: "n" replaced by "t" in N1932: see 26.3.7.2.2/1.
