The log likelihood of a binomial density with data, x, size and prob parameters.

likbinom(x, size, prob, log = TRUE)

Arguments

x

vector of quantiles.

size

number of trials (zero or more).

prob

probability of success on each trial.

log

logical; if TRUE, probabilities p are given as log(p).

Value

A numeric scalar for the log likelihood of the binomial density given the data where size and prob can be held constant or if vector were given vector will be returned.

Details

The log likelihood is the log of a function of parameters given the data.

Examples

likbinom(x = rbinom(n = 2, size = 3, prob = .4), size = 3, prob = .4)
