the Binomial is just the aggregate of many Bernoulli trials

#### Explanation:

if the Bernoulli is

1= success , 2= success:

1= fail , 2= success:

1= success , 2= fail:

1= fail , 2= fail:

now if we wanted to know the probability of exactly 1 success out of 2 trials we know that

if we want exactly 2 success out of 2 trials then

it turns out that if you continue like this you end up with the binomial form
