Find the probability distribution

Hello! I am trying to complete this table where n=5 and p=0.466. On the TI-84 I can use BINOMPDF(5, 0.466) and the calculator will return a list of values.  When I try this on the Prime it returns a syntax error as BINOMIAL() requires a value for x. Can anyone suggest a solution?

The easiest way to get your table is to us the function plotter.

Set your function to BINOMIAL_CDF(5,.466,X)

Use Num setup to set the step size to 1, press Num and voila, your table appears.

Oh wait, you wanted the density function, not the cumulative. The function for that is just BINOMIAL with the same parameters.

In fact, you can enter both as s function to get a combined table.
